AP Game Recap

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. -- Devin Williams didn't back down after taking a shot to the nose and a forearm to the chin on separate occasions in the first half against Texas.

Williams finished with 14 points and was a big reason No. 20 West Virginia's inside game showed up this time against Texas in the Mountaineers' 71-64 win over the Longhorns on Tuesday night.

Two weeks ago the Mountaineers were downtrodden after three losses in four games. Now they've won three straight.

"We're just going to try to ride the wave, man," Williams said.

Daxter Miles Jr. and Jonathan Holton added 12 points apiece for West Virginia (22-6, 10-5 Big 12), which ended a four-game losing streak to the Longhorns (17-11, 6-9).

West Virginia finally figured out a way to outfox the bigger, more physical Longhorns.
