In what has become the norm this season for the Mountaineers, poor second half shooting doomed WVU on Monday night in a 77-67 loss to the TCU Horned Frogs.
West Virginia, who has now lost 11 of 12 games, did just enough to cut TCU’s lead to one going into halftime at 43-42. Taz Sherman, who finished the evening with 23 points, scored 17 of them in the first half. However, despite the solid efforts, it just was not meant to be once again for the Mountaineers.
Sean McNeil, who has become one of the most reliable players on WVU’s roster struggled all night, failing to add a single point to the box score. For a team that is struggling as much as WVU has lately, having one of their leading scorers put together such a poor effort certainly didn’t help things.
WVU is now 14-13 on the season, including 3-11 in Big 12 play. They will return to action on Wednesday night as they travel to Ames, Iowa to take on the Iowa State Cyclones.
Tip-off is set for 7 p.m. with the broadcast set to take place on ESPNU.
