After a promising start on Saturday evening, the West Virginia Mountaineers fell to the Oklahoma State Cowboys in Stillwater, 81-58.
Things quickly began to derail in the second half after the Cowboys took a 36-30 lead into the intermission. The Mountaineers simply could not buy a basket, shooting a horrendous 13% from the field at one point after the game resumed. Though this was an Oklahoma State team that has struggled and has no postseason hopes this year, their heart simply outmatched West Virginia’s.
Taz Sherman, who has been WVU’s best player on the season, was once again the lone bright spot on the court. Unfortunately, his efforts just weren’t enough to elevate the Mountaineers in this Big 12 contest.
West Virginia returns to action on Monday night as they travel to Manhattan, Kansas to take on the Kansas State Wildcats. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m. with the broadcast taking place on ESPN2.
