AP Game Recap

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. -- West Virginia had just split a pair of games against Kansas and Oklahoma last week to move up the national rankings.

The No. 6 Mountaineers fell flat on Wednesday night, falling to unranked Texas 56-49.

"I have always thought, as long as I've done this, when you make easy shots and when you can't make free throws, you're not mentally into what you're doing," West Virginia coach Bob Huggins said. "And we weren't mentally into what we were doing."

The letdown came despite West Virginia having occupied the national rankings for 20 of the last 25 polls, dating to last season.

"This is a league you cannot relax at all.
