West Virginia comeback falls short

Iowa State holds on, wins 69-67

(Continued)

AMES, Iowa —

 
Eron Harris chipped in with 17 points for West Virginia, including four 3s in the second half.
 
“They caught a rhythm, and they made tough shots,” Hoiberg said. “They hit from 25, 26 feet with a hand in their face. If they hit those shots, you shake their hand. I’m thankful we got this win.”
 
Iowa State guard Bubu Palo, who was reinstated to the team on Monday after a sexual abuse charge against him was dropped by prosecutors, sat on the bench but wasn’t in uniform.
 
Palo was suspended from the team in September after being charged with sexually abusing a woman in May. But the Story County Attorney’s Office said Monday that forensic evidence clashed with sworn testimony provided by the woman and her mother.
 
Palo said Wednesday that he expects to be back in time for next week’s game at Texas Tech.
