LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - Tynice Martin scored 21 points and No. 24 West Virginia beat Kansas 62-51 on Wednesday night.

The Mountaineers (15-4, 3-4 Big 12) snapped a two-game losing streak despite scoring 16 points below their average and committing 25 turnovers.

Jessica Washington scored 24 points on 7-of-22 shooting for the Jayhawks (6-12, 0-7). McKenzie Calvert added 12 points.

Kansas had the lead briefly in the third quarter before a Martin 3-pointer put West Virginia up 39-37 at the end of the period.

Calvert got Kansas within four with 2½ minutes left with a 3-pointer but Muldrow made a layup before the Mountaineers sank 10 free throws in the final 45 seconds.
