Naz Mitrou-Long (15.8 points), Deonte Burton (14.3) and Matt Thomas (12) also are averaging double digits in points for the Cyclones, who are shooting 39.8 percent from 3-point range.

ABOUT WEST VIRGINIA (23-7, 11-6): The Mountaineers had their three-game winning streak snapped with a 71-62 loss at Baylor on Monday, losing the battle on the boards by a 42-23 margin. “Defensively, we got real tentative,” coach Bob Huggins told reporters. “And they really just beat us to death on the glass.” Jevon Carter, who leads the team in scoring (12.9 points), assists (four) and steals (2.8), recorded 18 points and nine rebounds in the loss while Tarik Phillip and Elijah Macon also finished in double digits with 12 and 11 points, respectively.
