MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - Royce O'Neale enjoyed a career day and Baylor topped West Virginia 88-75 Saturday in a battle of Big 12 teams striving to make noise in front of the NCAA Tournament.

O'Neale scored 22 points, connecting on 8 of 8 field goal attempts, including 4 of 4 from long range. He entered the game at 6 points per game, and had two points in the last meeting between the teams.

O'Neale was one of five players to score in double figures for Baylor (18-9, 6-8 Big 12).

Others included Isaiah Austin (19), Cory Jefferson (15), Kenny Chery (13) and Brady Heslip (12). It was Baylor's fourth consecutive league victory.

West Virginia (15-12, 7-7), lost for the third time in the last four games.

Eron Harris connected on 9 of 17 field goals, including 6 of 9 3-pointers, to finish with 32 points for WVU. Juwan Staten added 16 points.
