Missed layups and cold shooting from the floor leads to another loss to the Sooners.
West Virginia raced out to a late first half lead of 12 points, thanks to some hot handed three point shooting by Terry Henderson. That lead was whittled down during a cold shooting spell that lasted all of the second half. WVU didn't score a field goal in the last 5:44.
A late game graphic showed the WVU shooting percentage in the second half as 28%. It only went downhill from there as Oklahoma went on a 16-2 run to close out the game.
Another large lead blown and a 12 point lead turned into a 10 point defeat.
Saddled with foul trouble most of the second half, Aaric Murray wasn't much of a factor after hitting two 3-pointers to open the game. He finished with only 8 points. The Mountaineer scoring was led by Terry Henderson who chipped in 21 points, all but 3 coming in the first half.
Yes, this was an impressive choke job by the Mountaineer cagers.
The Mountaineers return to action on Wednesday when they travel to Austin to take on the Longhorns.
