MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) Bob Huggins fell to his knees and clutched his chest during a scary moment just before halftime.

West Virginia players picked up their coach, got him to the bench and made his job easier by maintaining a comfortable lead the rest of the way Monday night.

Jevon Carter had 24 points and Lamont West had a career-high 23, helping the 12th-ranked Mountaineers roll to a 77-62 win over Texas following Huggins' frightening fall.
