It’s getting late in a season that still lacks a win a team that is ranked or in the RPI’s top 100.
They had opportunities against Kansas State with a lead in the final minute and then three shots when they had a chance to win in the final 20 seconds, but nothing went right. The Wildcats had their game-winning points come at the foul line with 21.4 seconds to go, nearly stole the ball on WVU’s final inbound and then blocked the game’s final shot.
“We’re getting better, we’re making steps in the right direction, but instead of taking a big step today we took a very small one,” forward Kevin Noreen said. “There really aren’t any moral victories right now. We need to get to 20 (wins). Dropping one like that hurts.”
