West Virginia downs No. 8 Kansas

Morgantown, WV (SportsNetwork.com) - Juwan Staten had 24 points, nine assists and five rebounds as West Virginia held off eighth-ranked Kansas for a 92-86 win at WVU Coliseum on Saturday.

The Mountaineers (17-14, 9-9 Big 12) led by as many as 25 in the second half, but saw that lead evaporate to just five with less than a minute to go. WVU went 7-for-8 from the line down the stretch to seal its first-ever win over Kansas.

Eron Harris added 28 points on 5-of-7 shooting from 3-point range and Devin Williams finished with 22 points and 13 rebounds for the Mountaineers.

Andrew Wiggins provided his most impressive performance of the season, pouring in a season-high 41 points to go with eight rebounds, five steals, four blocks and two assists. The highly-touted freshman was 12-for-18 from the field and finished 15-for-19 from the free-throw line.

Perry Ellis added 14 points for Kansas (23-8, 14-4). The Jayhawks dropped two of their last three regular-season games, but had already secured the top seed in the upcoming Big 12 tournament.
