Brandon Watkins scores 14 points and pulls down 9 rebounds

Kansas State overcame an 11-point deficit at halftime and took the lead with just over two minutes left in the game. However, the Mountaineers’ Devin Williams took the lead back for WVU on a key bucket late to close it out and get the victory. Nino Williams got the best of WVU, scoring 22 points but it still wasn’t enough for the Wildcats to come away with a win in Morgantown.

The Mountaineers snapped their first losing streak of the season with the win, after having lost back-to-back games against Oklahoma and Baylor.

Juwan Staten had 11 points and 6 assists for WVU, while Jevon Carter and Jaysean Paige each added 10.

The Mountaineers travel to No. 14 Iowa State on Saturday. The Cyclones beat the Mountaineers in a close game earlier in the season at the Coliseum.
