No. 20 West Virginia beats Texas 71-64

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) -- Devin Williams scored 14 points to lead No. 20 West Virginia to a 71-64 win over Texas on Tuesday night.
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.
