    MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) Teddy Allen scored 16 points, giving No. 20 West Virginia a needed spark off the bench in an 82-66 victory over TCU on Monday night.

    James ''Beetle'' Bolden added 14 points, Daxter Miles Jr. scored 13 and Wes Harris had 11 points for West Virginia (19-7, 8-5 Big 12).

    Desmond Bane had 16 points, Vladimir Brodziansky added 15 and Kouat Noiscored 12 for TCU (17-9, 5-8).

    West Virginia has had trouble holding onto leads throughout the Big 12 season but didn't let the Horned Frogs come back from a 38-27 halftime deficit.

    TCU twice closed within five in the second half, but went without a field goal over a crucial four-minute stretch and West Virginia capitalized with a rare strong finish. The Mountaineers outscored the Horned Frogs 15-7 over the final three minutes.

    With less-than-stellar games from leading scorer Jevon Carter and shot-blocking specialist Sagaba Konate, West Virginia overcame a sluggish start with sparks from reserves Allen, Bolden and Maciej Bender to move ahead for good late in the first half. West Virginia's 38 bench points were its most in a Big 12 game this season.

    BIG PICTURE
    TCU: The Horned Frogs couldn't mirror their offensive performance in an 82-73 win over West Virginia on Jan. 22. TCU is fighting for its first NCAA Tournament bid in 20 years, but it's been that long since the Horned Frogs have beaten a ranked team on the road.

    UP NEXT
    TCU goes for a regular-season sweep of Oklahoma State at home on Saturday.

    * Brodziansky scored in double-figures for the 17th-straight game.

    * Desmond Bane scored a team-high 16 points. He entered the game shooting a Big 12-best 50 percent from 3-point range and was 3-of-5 from deep on Monday. He is now 11-for-14 from three in the past five games.
    * Kouat Noi finished with 12 points and was 1-of-5 shooting from 3-point range. It was his 11th-straight game with a made three.
     
  2. I keep thinking about that offensive foul on Miller. If he makes that free throw, we are only down 5 with three minutes to go. Just one time I wish refs would call fouls against WVU like they should on the press and traps
     
    Leap Frog and tcumaniac like this.
  3. It's never on one person, but when you have a player take 17 shots and make five of them, puts you in a pretty big hole.

  4. Are we just going to limp our way to the end of the season?

    Let's say we make the tournament, just go with what we have?

    No chance to burn a redshirt? It probably should have been done earlier, maybe too late now.
     
  5. You wouldn't burn a shirt at this point unless you had a shot at the NC, IMO.
     
  6. Glad I played Xbox all night instead. Good lord.
