No. 2 Bruins Drop Road Contest at West Virginia, 70-65
Feb. 10, 2007
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - Alex Ruoff scored 18 points and West Virginia withstood two rallies by No. 2 UCLA in the second half to beat the Bruins 70-65 on Saturday.
For the second straight season, UCLA (21-3, 10-2 Pac-10) couldn't recover from a double-digit deficit against the Mountaineers. All three UCLA losses have come on the road this season. This was the first to a non-conference opponent.
Frank Young added 14 points and freshman Da'Sean Butler had 13 for West Virginia (19-5, 7-4 Big East).
Hundreds of gold-and-blue clad fans stormed the court and the loudspeakers blared John Denver's 'Country Roads' after the final buzzer.
