Revenge can be oh so sweet, and the Mountaineers have now completed their revenge tour against both Oklahoma on Wednesday night, and now against Kansas State 85-66today. The Mountaineers were led by Jevon Carter with 19 points, 2 assists, and 9 rebounds. Kansas State was led by Wesley Iwundu who accrued 14 points. 

Throughout the first ten minutes of play, West Virginia found themselves in a dogfight leading the Wildcats 15-14. The Mountaineers had accrued 11 rebounds to the Wildcats’ 8. Kansas State allowed Bob Huggins and Company to get into the bonus with eleven minutes to play. James Bolden continued to impress spurring a 7-0 run and contributing five of those seven points. Kansas State went 0-7 during the Mountaineers run. 

As the first half came to an end, the Mountaineers and Wildcats were tied 34-34. Jevon Carter led the Mountaineers with 9 points to go along with 4 rebounds. The Wildcats were able to force the Mountaineers into 8 turnovers while only committing 6 turnovers themselves. The Wildcats were led by Wesley Iwundu who had 10 points and 7 rebounds.

The Wildcats were unable to keep their turnovers down like in the first half as they committed 19 turnovers by the end of regulation. The Mountaineers will take their two game winning streak on the road this Monday as they visit Lawrence, Kansas to face the Kansas Jayhawks. Game time is set for 9:00pm E.T. and will be aired on ESPN.
