WVU's Sagaba Konate had a block party against Kansas

  West Virginia's Sagaba Konate had five blocks in the first half against Kansas.

West Virginia forward Sagaba Konate had a block party on Monday night and he invited all of the Kansas Jayhawks. The sixth-ranked Mountaineers hosted the 10th-ranked Jayhawks in a Big 12 showdown and West Virginia's 6-8, 260-pound sophomore forward racked up five blocks in the first half, including two incredible stuffs at the rim that thwarted potential Kansas dunks.

That kind of defensive performance isn't out of the ordinary for Konate, who entered the game averaging 2.9 blocks per game – the second-best average in the conference. He set a career high with seven blocks against Baylor on Jan. 9.
