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.
