No. 1 Baylor men’s basketball dominated No. 14 West Virginia Saturday to the tune of 70-59, though the Bears led by as many as 21 points with 3:15 left in the game. Sophomore guard Jared Butler shined as the game’s leading scorer with 21 points on 8-11 shooting.

Baylor came out raucous to open the first half, gaining a 10-point lead just eight minutes into the contest. The Bears drove the lead up to 19 with 3:41 left before the break thanks to hot shooting from Butler and redshirt sophomore guard Davion Mitchell.
