Texas' Prince Ibeh throws down the dunk of the game vs. WVU

Throw it down, big man!

As the Texas Longhorns tried to hold off the West Virginia Mountaineers in the second half on Wednesday night in Morgantown, a big play by Isiaiah Taylor and Prince Ibeh helped stretch the lead.

An outlet pass from guard Javan Felix broke the West Virginia press and Taylor spotted the athletic Ibeh on a rim run as Tevin Mack's cut pulled the lone defender in position to stop the play away from Ibeh.

The lob from Taylor wasn't perfect -- in fact, the ball hit Ibeh on the wrist, but he was able to muscle it through the basket for a resounding dunk to give the Horns a seven-point lead and force a timeout from an exasperated Bob Huggins.

Texas never trailed after that point and came out with a hugely important Big 12 road win, with Ibeh's dunk serving as the evening's highlight.
