Article excerpt

Juwan Staten made a layup with 4 seconds left to lift No. 23 West Virginia to a 62-61 Big 12 Conference victory against No. 8 Kansas Monday night at WVU Coliseum in Morgantown, W.Va.

Staten finished with 20 points to give the Mountaineers (20-6, 8- 5) their first 20-win season in four years.

It was Staten's first field goal over the final eight minutes after he had gone to the bench with leg cramps.

After Staten made a spin move and hit a left-handed layup, Perry Ellis caught a long pass but missed a layup between two defenders just before the final buzzer. Ellis finished with 19 points for Kansas (21-5, 10-3).
