Daxter Miles Jr. and Jonathan Holton added 12 points apiece and Jevon Carter had 10 for West Virginia. Their outside scoring helped the Mountaineers (22-6, 10-5 Big 12) break open a close game in the second half and end a four-game losing streak to the Longhorns (17-11, 6-9).
Demarcus Holland scored 14 points and Isaiah Taylor added 13 for Texas, which couldn't overcome an 18-point first-half deficit and lost its third straight.
West Virginia figured out a way to outfox the bigger, more physical Longhorns. West Virginia scored 28 points in the paint -- 14 more than in a 77-50 loss to the Longhorns last month in Austin, Texas.
