After a string of four wins, Virginia's good fortune finally ran out on Monday. They ended up on the wrong side of a painful 65-41 walloping at the hands of the Badgers. Virginia found out winning isn't easy when you're outrebounded 20 to 3 on offense.

Meanwhile, the Mountaineers came up short against the Mustangs on Monday and fell 70-58. The loss hurts even more since West Virginia was up 37-25 with 19:37 left in the second.
