Cam Ridley scored 19 points as No. 20 Texas snapped a two-game skid with an emphatic 77-50 thrashing of No. 16 West Virginia.

No. 16 West Virginia suffered its worst loss of the season as the Mountaineers got blown out by 20th-ranked Texas in Austin, 77-50. West Virginia was held to just 24 percent shooting and committed 17 turnovers, while leading scorer Juwan Staten scored only 3 points.

The Longhorns dominated the Mountaineers in the paint, out-rebounding WVU 44-32. Center Cameron Ridley of Texas led all scorers with 19 points.

West Virginia’s full court press defense forced 19 Texas turnovers, but the Longhorns had success early with an 18-2 run early in the first half. The Mountaineers didn’t get a shot off for over 7 minutes during that span and never recovered.

Gary Browne was the only West Virginia player in double figures, leading the team with 14 points. Texas forward Jonathan Holmes had 16 points and 11 rebounds, while forward Myles Turner had 16 points and 7 rebounds off the bench.

The win improved Texas to 13-4 (2-2 in the Big 12) while the Mountaineers dropped to 15-3 on the year and 3-2 in conference play.

The Mountaineers will get a week off to regroup before hosting TCU next Saturday at the WVU Coliseum. West Virginia beat TCU 78-67 in Fort Worth on Jan. 3.
