The Mountaineers were led by seniors Kevin Jones and Truck Bryant. Jones had 22 points and 16 rebounds on the night and Bryant had 28 points. Jabarie Hinds also had a good night. He was 6-8 from the floor scoring 14 points and 4 assists. The team was 50.8% from the floor, 45.5% from the 3-point line and 65.8% from the free throw line.
The Blue Demons were led by Cleveland Melvin and Brandon Young. They each had 21 points. Melvin also had 8 rebounds on the night. The team was 43.1% from the floor, 37.5% from 3-point range, and 81.3% from the free throw line.
The Mountaineers have a few days off before traveling to South Florida to take on the Bulls. That game may be the biggest of the season for both teams. Hopefully the Mountaineers can carry the momentum from this win on the road.
