Carr’s strong 2nd half lifts No. 7 Texas over West Virginia

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — Marcus Carr scored 19 of his 23 points in the second half to lead No. 7 Texas to a 69-61 victory over West Virginia. Dylan Disu added 13 points before fouling out, while Christian Bishop and Tyrese Hunter scored 11 apiece for the Longhorns. Texas bounced back from a double-digit loss at No. 12 Iowa State on Wednesday. The Mountaineers (11-8, 1-6) had several players in early foul trouble and couldn’t match the energy of a win over No. 14 TCU on Wednesday. Kedrian Johnson had a career-high 22 points for West Virginia. But his teammates fell flat in the second half against the Longhorns.
