Perhaps the Mountaineers could have pulled out the landmark win had junior forward Da'Sean Butler not been plagued by foul trouble for much of the night.
Butler finished with 13 points and five steals, but the rest of his stat line was a microcosm of the problems that plagued WVU for pretty much the entire game. The Newark, N.J. native finished just five-of-13 from the floor, and grabbed just two rebounds.
Robinson, who played all but a few seconds on the night, led the way with 15 boards. Thabeet grabbed 13 and Adrien seven. Freshman guard Kemba Walker was often the smallest player on the court, but still managed to snag eight rebounds. The Huskies finished with 20 offensive rebounds, 15 of which came in the first half.
WVU made just 20 of its 66 field-goal attempts, which equates to just 30.3 percent from the floor. From three-point land, West Virginia was a frigid six-of-26.
Smith, given the unenviable task of trying to guard Thabeet on several occasions, finished with nine points and eight rebounds in the loss.
