The West Virginia Mountaineers played the Baylor Bears at the Bears' home court. This is the fourth time the two teams have met. Baylor has won all three of the previous games. Both teams were coming off of a rough streak, with the Mountaineers losing four of their last five and the Bears losing their last four games.
This is the first time that Baylor has lost five games in a row since 2009. They just fell off the AP Top 25 rankings for first time in 12 weeks and after this game, don't appear to be joining the rankings this week. After an upsetting final shot that would have put the Bears ahead at the buzzer, it was ruled that the ball was still in the hand when the clock hit zero.
On the other hand, the Mountaineers were coming off a close game against Oklahoma State. The 11th-ranked team beat West Virginia, but it showed that, although they may not be ranked, the Mountaineers are still a tough team to play. The Mountaineers led for the majority of the game and clung on for the win in an exciting last few minutes.
West Virginia beat Baylor in a close, hard fought game. The final score is 66-64.
