Familiar feeling: KU falls at West Virginia for third straight season

Sparsely populated at the start of Tuesday’s West Virginia-Kansas University basketball game because of a snowstorm that turned major highways into skating rinks, WVU Coliseum was close to full by the end of the Mountaineers’ 74-63 victory over the Jayhawks. The perseverance on the roads paid off for the WVU fans, who witnessed history as their No. 11-ranked (15-1, 4-0) Mountaineers beat a No. 1-ranked team in Morgantown for the first time since 1983.
