WACO, Texas (AP) Juwan Staten made a reverse layup with 3.1 seconds left and West Virginia held on to beat Baylor 66-64 on Tuesday night.
The Mountaineers (12-9, 4-4 Big 12) had gone nearly 5 minutes without scoring, blowing an eight-point lead in the process, before Staten drove the baseline and under the basket before making the game-winning shot. He finished with a game-high 15 points and nine assists.
Kenny Chery banked in what would have been a game-winning 3-pointer for Baylor (13-7, 1-6), but it came after the buzzer sounded. Officials looked at replay to confirm that he didn’t get the shot off in time.
Remi Dibo added 13 points, while Eron Harris had 12 and Terry Henderson 11 for West Virginia, which scored 18 points off 17 turnovers by Baylor.
Brady Heslip had 13 points to lead Baylor, including four 3-pointers, while Taurean Prince had 11 points and Chery 10.
