MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) -- Kevin Jones scored 26 points for West Virginia, and Gary Browne hit a 3-pointer to send the game to overtime and a layup to help clinch a 77-74 victory over Cincinnati Saturday. Trailing 69-66 with 24 seconds left in regulation, West Virginia (15-5, 5-2 Big East) came out of a timeout and Deniz Kilicli got the ball in the hands of Browne, who sank the shot of the game with 14 seconds remaining to send it into OT. In overtime, Jones and Jabarie Hinds combined to go 4-for-4 from the foul line in the first 2 minutes and the Mountaineers never trailed. Brown then had a layup and Kilicli hit a jumper as the Mountaineers outscored Cincinnati (15-5, 5-2) 8-5 in OT to seal the win. Jones' key baskets throughout the game helped nullify the fact that his running mate Darryl "Truck" Bryant was held to just six points.
