The Kansas basketball team’s 18-game winning streak finally derailed Tuesday night, when the Jayhawks stumbled through the second half of a 85-69 loss at West Virginia.
West Virginia’s unencumbered procession to the hoop for easy buckets in Tuesday’s 85-69 bullying of Kansas at packed WVU Coliseum might have had a little to do with the same players’ procession to the treadmill in the wake of consecutive losses to Oklahoma and Kansas State. By Tom Keegan
Booed every time he touched the ball, thanks to a directive from the West Virginia student section’s pregame flyer known as the Mountaineer Maniacs Musings that dubbed him the Bum of the Game, Kansas point guard Frank Mason III had an off night during the Jayhawks’ 85-69 loss to No. 18 West Virginia.

A three-point halftime lead on Tuesday night at WVU Coliseum turned quickly into a nine-point edge for the home team after West Virginia scored on five consecutive layups to start the second half, the perfect snapshot of an area that No. 2 Kansas made way too easy during an 85-69 loss to the 18th-ranked Mountaineers.

The Kansas basketball program has only made four trips to Morgantown, West Virginia, all of them coming since the Mountaineers joined the Big 12. Each of the Jayhawks’ previous three visits to WVU Coliseum have ended with a loss. No. 2 KU (18-1 overall, 7-0 Big 12) looks to reverse that trend against No. 18 West Virginia (15-4, 4-3) Tuesday night.
