The Mountaineers went into Columbia with all the momentum in the world and came out flat.

Big nonconference game for WVU and they couldn't have come out more flat.

Of course, the Eers came out of the timeout for a shot clock violation.  That was the kind of night it was for the Mountaineers going into the half down 39-22.  The shooting woes continued until about 3:46 left in the game.  WVU down 71-58 and start trading 2s for 3s and defensive stops for layups. After two minutes, Remi Dibo hit a three to put it within 8 points with 90 seconds to go. Sadly, that's as close as it would get.

It was only a matter of time until this happened again.  WVU couldn't buy a shot against Wisconsin in the first half and the shooting gods strike again in Columbia.  Would have been nice to get the W, I'm not sure if it will end up being costly.  Tuesday against the Zags would more than make up for it.
