WVU falls to Oklahoma, 77-70

West Virginia fell to 1-3 after a 77-70 loss to Oklahoma in the Old Spice Classic in Florida on Sunday.

The Mountaineers took a 63-62 lead on two Gary Browne free throws with about six minutes left in the second half, but couldn't make much of an impact after that, as the Sooners nursed a small lead until time expired. Amath M'Baye had 19 points and six rebounds for the Sooners, while Juwan Slaten had 15 points for the Mountaineers. Browne went 10-for-11 from the line and finished with 13 points, while Deniz Kilicli had 13 points and four rebounds.

The loss concluded a disappointing trip for West Virginia -- the Mountaineers beat Marist, but lost to Gonzaga, Davidson and Oklahoma. Their season will continue with a home matchup against VMI on Wednesday.

Gonzaga, meanwhile, topped Davidson, 81-67, to win the Old Spice Classic championship, as expected. Gonzaga is now 6-0.

WVU falls to Davidson

West Virginia fell to 1-2 after suffering a 63-60 loss to Davidson in the second round of the Old Spice Classic in Florida on Friday.

Chris Czerapowicz led the Wildcats with 15 points and nine rebounds. Juwan Slaten had 15 points for the Mountaineers, while Deniz Kilicli had 10 points and 11 rebounds.

The Mountaineers had a 21-14 lead midway through the first half after two straight buckets by Jabarie Hinds. The Mountaineers also had a lead of 30-22 near the end of the first half, but the Wildcats closed the gap to tie the game near the end of the half after a Czerapowicz three-pointer. WVU took a two-point lead into the locker room, but could not hold it, as the Wildcats quickly took a lead in the second half.

The loss to Davidson signaled what many WVU fans already knew -- that, after the departures of Kevin Jones and Truck Bryant, it might be a rough year for the Mountaineers. WVU will now face the loser of Gonzaga and Oklahoma on Sunday at 4:30.
