Baylor Holds Off WVU

Posted:

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) -- Three Baylor Bears scored double figures Wednesday as they edged West Virginia 65-62 to snap a three-game losing string and keep hopes alive of an at-large NCAA tournament bid.

The Bears (17-11, 8-7 Big 12) had lost three in a row and six of their past eight. On top of that, coming in, they led West Virginia (13-15, 6-9) by just one game for sixth place in the league.

West Virginia has lost three in a row and is in danger of its first losing season since former coach John Beilein's first year in 2002-03. That group finished 14-15. The Mountaineers have gone to five straight NCAA tournaments under coach Bob Huggins.

Baylor was led by Isaiah Austin's 21 points, Pierre Jackson added 15 and A.J. Walton 10 before fouling out.

Eron Harris scored a career-high 25 points for the Mountaineers. Kevin Noreen had 10.
