MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) Jaysean Paige scored 26 points, Devin Williams had 17 points and 12 rebounds, and No. 11 West Virginia beat top-ranked Kansas 74-63 on Tuesday night.
West Virginia (15-1, 4-0 Big 12) is off to its best start since 1982, when it started 24-1.
Perry Ellis scored 21 points for Kansas (14-2, 3-1). The Jayhawks committed a season-high 22 turnovers, shot 42 percent for the game and were held to their lowest point total of the season.
