Junior Tyrone Sally bounced back from a subpar season opener to earn player of the game honors against Northeastern, but it wasn't enough to propel the Mountaineers to a win.
Sally scored 18 points on 5-7 shooting from the field along with seven of 10 from the free throw line. He also battled well on the boards, grabbing eight rebounds.
Sally had five assists and one shot block, but did have five turnovers on the evening as the Mountaineers suffered 16 giveaways in the 91-84 loss.
Sally hit one of his three three-point attempts, and played with intensity on an evening when many of the Mountaineers seemed to be a step slow.
