West Virginia Tops Oklahoma State 77-60, Readies For No. 1 Kansas on Tuesday

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - West Virginia showcased excellent ball movement and inside-out play in its 77-60 win over Oklahoma State. And now, the Mountaineers turn to preparations for their match-up against No. 1 Kansas at home on Tuesday.

WVU, now 14-1 overall and 3-0 in the Big 12 for their first time in their four seasons, was able to collpase the OSU zone, leading to point blank looks on the interior and some open trees when the ball was kicked back out. And even when those looks didn't fall, West Virginia's 18-8 edge in offensive rebounding, combined with 15 additional shots, led to an easy win that set-up a prime time match-up against No. 1 Kansas at the Coliseum on Tuesday with students back in town.

Head coach Bob Huggins, above, reviews the third consecutive league win, and details the health staus of Daxter Miles, who sat out the game with an ankle sprain. That elevated Jaysean Paige into a starting role, ans the typical sixth ma responded with nine points and his usual dose of energy despite missing eight of 10 shots from the field, including all four three-pointers. Huggins also detailed the passing versus the zone, West Virginia's domination on the inside and how the Mountaineers' tried to attack an Oklahoma State team struggling to score from close this season. Huggins also discusses WVU's ability to limit turnovers to 10 while forcing 16 to help offset 36.1 percent shooting from the field.
