Cameron Ridley added 12 points and 12 rebounds for Texas (13-4, 2-2). It was Ridley's fourth double-double of the season. Isaiah Taylor and Martez Walker each tallied 10 points.

West Virginia (10-7, 2-2) lost for the second consecutive time in Big 12 play after starting 2-0. The loss for West Virginia marked the first time the Mountaineers had been beaten by double-figures this year.

Juwan Staten, who entered the game ranked fifth in the league in scoring (17 points per game) and second in the conference in assists (6.1), finished with 23 points and five assists.

He was followed by Terry Henderson's 16 points and Remi Dibo's 10. It was Henderson's fifth consecutive double-figure effort for the Mountaineers. Freshman Brandon Watkins had five blocks.

Texas' double-digit win changed a previous five-game, all-time set between these teams which had been decided by 11 total points. The series is knotted at 3-3.

Ridley, a 6-foot-9, 285-pound sophomore, has reached double figures in scoring nine times this season.
