WVU Snaps Losing Streak

MORGANTOWN, WV – The West Virginia Mountaineers used a strong second half to take down the Cincinnati Bearcats on Wednesday night, 69-65.

WVU, now 8-13 and 3-5 in Big 12 play, were led by a strong performance from Senior Jesse Edwards. The Amsterdam native finished with 25 points and 10 rebounds. After a long break from action due to injury, Edwards finally looked back to strength, and it made all the difference.

Despite leading at halftime, Cincinnati simply could not hold off a Mountaineer squad that wanted it more. The Bearcats, now 14-7 and 3-5 in Big 12 plays, were solid throughout the night while dominating the glass with 42 rebounds.

WVU returns home on Saturday night against the BYU Cougars. Tip-off is set for 6 p.m. on ESPN+.
