In absolutely gut wrenching fashion, WVU lost a heartbreaker to the Iowa State Cyclones in Ames by a final score of 84-81.
The Mountaineers, who have lost 12 of their last 13 games, lost the lead late on a turnover that immediately turned into points. As it has been all season, the offense was unable to do enough to take the lead back in the final seconds with a late turnover of their own.
Malik Curry led all scorers for the Mountaineers with 19, and Taz Sherman put together yet another solid performance with 15 points. Despite WVU having success at the free throw line, it simply wasn’t enough at the end.
WVU returns to the court on Saturday to take on Texas. Tip-off is set for 2 p.m.
