MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) _ Oscar Tshiebwe had 13 points and 11 rebounds, Derek Culver scored 13 points, No. 14 West Virginia jumped to a big early lead and coasted to a 97-59 victory over Texas.

It was the fifth-worst loss in Texas history and the worst under coach Shaka Smart.

Jermaine Haley added 12 points and Jordan McCabe scored 10 for the Mountaineers.

West Virginia improved to 9-0 at home and bounced back from a lopsided loss at Kansas State that cost them a spot in the top 10 this week.

Jase Febres led the Longhorns with 18 points and Matt Coleman cored 15. 
West Virginia improves to 15-3 and is back in action on Saturday at home against Missouri
