Final score of Saturday’s game deceiving because of slow pace

MORGANTOWN — The final score may have looked like an up-and-down shootout broke out at the WVU Coliseum, but the reality was anything but in a game with a pace that felt more suited to scoring in the high 50s or low 60s.

Oklahoma State had only 10 total assists on 27 field goals, while West Virginia had seven assists on 26 field goals. Anyone who caught a quick mid-game snooze likely missed the fast-break points, which WVU led by a 4-0 total.

The Cowboys scored 23 points at the free-throw line, and the Mountaineers 19.
