No. 18 West Virginia edges TCU 86-85 in overtime

Jevon Carter sank two free throws with 1 second left in overtime to lift No. 18 West Virginia to an 86-85 victory over TCU on Saturday.

West Virginia (16-3, 4-2 Big 12) narrowly avoided another meltdown after falling 77-50 at No. 17 Texas a week ago.

Devin Williams and Juwan Staten had 18 points apiece for the Mountaineers.

Kyan Anderson scored 22 points to lead six players in double figures for the Horned Frogs (14-5, 1-5).

TCU led 80-75 after an Anderson jumper with 1:16 left in overtime, but Daxter Miles Jr. hit 3-pointers 21 seconds apart to put West Virginia ahead 84-83 with 8 seconds left.

After TCU's Trey Zeigler made a basket in the lane with 2 seconds left, Carter was fouled by Anderson on a drive and made both free throws to win it.
