Juwan Staten’s spinning lay-up with 3.9 seconds left gave No. 23 West Virginia a 62-61 win over No. 8 Kansas in Morgantown Monday night. The game wasn’t quite over after Staten’s basket, as the Jayhawks wound up with a great chance to win it at the other end thanks to a long outlet pass, but Perry Ellis missed his finger roll.
After the miss West Virginia students rushed the court, including someone dressed up like Master Chief.
This win was necessary for West Virginia as it is part of a brutal schedule end to the regular season. The squad will play at Oklahoma State Saturday as part of a stretch of six ranked opponents in the final seven games.
