Men's Basketball falls in tight battle at West Virginia
Feb. 4, 2013
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - Four Longhorns scored double-figure points, led by Sheldon McClellan's 14, in a 60-58 loss to West Virginia on Monday night.
West Virginia (11-11, 4-5 Big 12) swept the two-game regular season series against the Longhorns (10-12, 2-7). All five games in the Texas-WVU series have been decided by four points or less.
The bulk of McClellan's 14 points came on 9-of-12 shooting at the free throw line, adding a game-high eight rebounds. Javan Felix socred all his 12 points in the second half to fuel a second-half comeback.
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.
