The Mountaineers have been riding a wave of ups and downs over the last several weeks. Wins over then top-ranked Baylor and number two Kansas, with losses to unranked Oklahoma and Kansas State sandwiched in between. Against Texas A&M, they looked to return to the top of the surf by picking up their second win in a row.
WVU closed the first half on a 17-2 run behind seven three pointers, and then survived a second half surge from the Aggies which saw their lead cut to two. Ultimately, West Virginia got the job done with the 81-77 win. They hit to road to face Iowa State on Tuesday.
