Oklahoma's men's basketball team had serious travel problems, then a slow start, before losing to West Virginia in overtime 91-86 on Wednesday night in Morgantown.

The Sooner men were scheduled to arrive in nearby Clarksburg, West Virginia, on Tuesday afternoon, but weather forced the pilot to divert the flight to Newark, NJ.

OU spent Tuesday night in Newark, then flew Wednesday afternoon to Clarksburg, then bussed to Morgantown, where they arrived at WVU Coliseum about an hour and a half before tipoff.

The Sooners started slowly, before rallying to force overtime.

In OT, the Mountaineers got a pair of three-pointers from Eron Harris to earn the five-point win.

Jordan Woodard led OU with 23 points, with Tyler Neal adding 16.

Oklahoma drops to 17-6 overall, 6-4 in the Big 12.

OU hosts Baylor at 6:00 Saturday.
