Darrel Mitchell made sure not to be bothered by a little extra defense when he took the most important shot of the game.
Mitchell scored a game-high 26 points, including the final three-pointers in regulation and overtime. The latter swished through on a highly contested shot from deep in a corner with 5.3 seconds left to give LSU a 71-68 win over No. 13 West Virginia in Morgantown.
"I kind of knew when I let it go that it was going to hit," Mitchell said. "A guy got his hand up, but it didn't affect me."
LSU then fouled J.D. Collins, who missed a free throw. The rebound was tipped out to Pat Beilein, whose three-point attempt hit off the backboard and rim as time expired.
The Tigers (3-0) led the entire game until Joe Herber's three-pointer with 4 minutes 56 seconds remaining in regulation put West Virginia (2-3) ahead at 57-56. Mitchell sank a three-pointer in the waning seconds of regulation to send the game into overtime tied at 62.

West Virginia retired Jerry West's No. 44 during the game.
