This season, though, the Mountaineers are coming off a comeback victory against K-State. After trailing 23-6 midway through the first half and 40-27 at halftime, West Virginia surged in the second half to pull off a 71-68 victory over the shorthanded Wildcats. Guard Sean McNeil netted 26 points, tying his career high.
The victory over his former team marked career win No. 912 for WVU coach Bob Huggins, who ranks third among active Division I men’s basketball coaches in career wins.
Meanwhile, Oklahoma State is fresh off a 64-51 home victory over nationally ranked Texas, the team that defeated WVU in its Big 12 opener. The Cowboys closed that contest on a 13-2 run.
