The top ranked Baylor Bears lost for the first time this season Tuesday night at West Virginia, falling 89-68. Turnovers doomed the Bears one day after ascending to the top of the national rankings.
The Bears turned the ball over 29 times in the game, by far the most they've turned it over this season, and the fourth highest number of turnovers in program history.
