We’ve reached mustard suit levels of blowout performances
The West Virginia Mountaineers (10-14, 2-9 Big 12) just keep coming up with new and creative ways to make this season as bad as possible. Tonight’s 75-53 loss to the Texas Longhorns (14-10, 6-5 Big 12) is the Mountaineers’ worst home loss since their 62-39 loss to the Cincinnati Bearcats in Bob Huggins’ first season as West Virginia head coach.
The Mountaineers managed to keep it relatively close through the first half, trailing 34-28 going into the locker room, but the second half was just an unmitigated disaster. The Longhorns opened the second half on a 10-1 run before Esa Ahmad scored West Virginia’s first field goal of the half.
Texas turned the game into a dunk contest midway through the half, growing their lead to as much as 29 points.
West Virginia travels to Lawrence to take on the No. 13 Kansas Jayhawks next Saturday. The Mountaineers already hold a win over the Jayhawks this season. That game tips off at 4:00PM EST and will be televised on ESPN.
