(Monday, January 13th)

Final Score: Texas 80, West Virginia 69

Morgantown, WV (SportsNetwork.com) - Javan Felix scored 19 points, one of four players in double figures, as the Texas Longhorns captured an 80-69 win over the West Virginia Mountaineers in Big 12 Conference play at WVU Coliseum.

Cameron Ridley recorded a double-double for the Longhorns (13-4, 2-2 Big 12) with 12 points and 12 rebounds, his efforts on the glass matched by Jonathan Holmes who finished with nine points as Texas picked up a second win in as many games. Isaiah Taylor and Martez Walker chipped in with 10 points apiece.

Juwan Staten tallied a game-high 23 points and handed out five assists for the Mountaineers (10-7, 2-2) as they suffered a second straight setback. Terry Henderson pitched in with 16 points and Remi Dibo 10 off the bench.

West Virginia led by three points a minute into the meeting, but the team ended up shooting only 33.3 percent from the field, including 1-of-7 behind the 3-point line, through the first 20 minutes of action. Texas also had issues on the perimeter in the period (1-of-5), but connected on an even 50 percent from the floor in order to claim a 41-27 advantage at the break.

In the second half the Longhorns extended their lead to as many as 22 points, but the hosts refused to go away quietly as they cut their deficit in half by the final buzzer.

Texas turned the ball over 18 times, but made up for those miscues by topping WVU on the glass, 49-30.
