West Virginia defeated Kansas State 65-59 on Tuesday night in Manhattan, but the game was so ugly that neither team should have been called the victor. It was so nauseating that Mike Maas feared for the inventor of basketball in our Fan Tweet of the Night:

What a mess, but college basketball fans everywhere were feeling six feet under while viewing the teams combine for 45 turnovers, 54 fouls, and 64 free throws. The game lasted two and a half merciless hours.
Hats off to Mike for finding a way to get us all through the game, though the imagery he provided will haunt our dreams until the next time we watch Big 12 refs call a game, which is a far more horrifying image.
