    LAS VEGAS -- Kevin Jones had 16 points and 13 rebounds to lead West Virginia past Missouri State 70-68 on Thursday night in the Las Vegas Classic, giving coach Bob Huggins his 700th coaching victory.

    Darryl Bryant added 15 points and Gary Browne 13 for the Mountaineers (9-2).

    Caleb Patterson led the Bears (7-4) with 18 points.

    Trailing 63-60 late in regulation, Browne hit a fall-away 3-pointer with 1.6 seconds left to force overtime. It was Browne's only 3-pointer of the game.

    West Virginia had rallied from a five-point deficit with 45 seconds left in regulation.

    Trailing by two with 2 seconds left in overtime, Missouri State's Nathan Scheer put up a shot in the lane, but it bounced around the rim and out.

    Both teams have one game left in the Classic. West Virginia plays Baylor (No. 7 ESPN/USA Today, No. 6 AP) on Friday, while Missouri State plays Saint Mary's.
