Lamont West and Daxter Miles Jr. led West Virginia with 12 points apiece.

The Mountaineers (15-1, 4-0 Big 12) extended their winning streak to 15 games, the longest in the nation.

Manu Lecomte scored 13 points, and Jo Lual-Acuil Jr. had 11 points and 10 rebounds for his eighth double-double of the season for Baylor (11-5, 1-3).

The historic start to this Mountaineer basketball season has been well documented: for the first time since December 29, 1959, West Virginia is No. 2 in the AP poll. Add that all together and it resulted in a tie game at halftime. But the game remained closely contested until the closing minutes of regulation, tied at 51 with just over a minute to play. Muldrow had nine points from there as the Mountaineers pulled away. West Virginia was in the midst of a drought, having gone over four minutes scoring just one point.

West Virginia, which had little inside success against the taller Bears (11-5, 1-3), shot 31.1 percent (19-of-61) and was held to a season-low point total. Baylor tied it, though, at 51, and the Big 12 rivals went into the final 1:40 with the score even. The game remained knotted heading into a timeout at the 3:52 mark before a Sagaba Konate jump hook gave WVU a two-point lead. West Virginia was able to extend its lead to four points at 46-42, but Baylor continued to battle, tying the game for a final time at 49 after freshman forward Tristan Clark's two free throws. Carter missed a front end of one-and-one, though, but Konate saved him with a rebound of the miss.

Miles was West Virginia's leading scorer in the first half with seven points on 2-of-6 shooting. BU's ran a long pass-and-pitch that found a wide open Lecomte on the wing, but his try to tie the game was way long, and for the first time all night, West Virginia could breathe a sigh of relief with a 57-54 victory in hand. After West Virginia hit one of two from the free throw line, junior guard Jake Lindsey nailed a three from the corner to cut the lead to one at 55-54, but it was Carter who calmly knocked down two more free throws to seal the deal.

For Baylor, the Bears were led by senior Manu Lecomte, who scored 13 points.

WVU prevailed 57-54 Tuesday in a Big 12 Conference match-up, thanks to key contributions from numerous players in the final minutes.

Kopatich had 17 points and Austin Richardson scored 10 on 4-of-16 shooting for Kansas.

Konate tied John Flowers' 2010 record of seven blocks in a single game.

(9) OKLAHOMA 75, (8) TEXAS TECH 65: Trae Young scored 22 of his 27 points in the second half to help Oklahoma (13-2, 3-1 Big 12) beat Texas Tech (14-2, 3-1) at Norman, Oklahoma. Tipoff for Saturday's game is 2 p.m.
