WVU Loses Big at Texas

MORGANTOWN, WV – The West Virginia Mountaineers fell to the hands of the Texas Longhorns on Saturday afternoon by a final score of 94-58. After falling behind by double digits early, WVU would never recover en route to the blowout loss.

The Mountaineers, now 8-15 and 3-7 in conference play, struggled mightily on the defensive end. Texas shot an incredible 51.4% for the game, including hitting 15-32 from beyond the 3-point line. It was almost the exact opposite for WVU on the offensive side of the floor, as they only connected on 3 from deep for the entire contest.

Jesse Edwards led the way for West Virginia netting 17 points and 9 rebounds. RaeQuan Battle also tallied double-digits with 10 points.

WVU travels to Fort Worth, Texas on Monday night to take on TCU. Tip-off is set for 8 p.m. on ESPN+.
