WVU Blows 17 Point Lead, Loses To UK

The Mountaineers appeared to be headed to a memorable win against Kentucky Saturday night but the Wildcats stormed back to beat WVU on it's home court 83-76. West Virginia led by as many as 17 in the second half but was outscored by UK 50-28 in the second half and wind up losing for a fourth time in five games. Unranked Kentucky gets its first win against a ranked opponent. Freshman Kevin Knox led the way for UK scoring a career high 34 points in the win.
