West Virginia falls to Oklahoma in Old Spice Classic

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.
