WVU Hangs on to Beat Texas

Posted:

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) -- Deniz Kilicli and Jabarie Hinds scored 14 points apiece to lead West Virginia to a 60-58 win over Texas on Monday night.

West Virginia (11-11, 4-5 Big 12 Conference) swept the season series and sent the Longhorns (10-12, 2-7) to their seventh loss in nine games.

Freshman Eron Harris added 13 points for West Virginia.

Sheldon McClellan and Javan Felix led Texas with 12 points apiece.

Texas trailed by as many as 11 early in the second half but went ahead 49-47 on two free throws by Felix with 8:21 left. But the Longhorns were held to nine points -- and two field goals -- the rest of the game.

West Virginia scored five straight points, including Harris' free throw that put the Mountaineers ahead 59-54 with 25 seconds left.
