For one of the few times in the past two seasons, West Virginia was never seriously challenged and turned the game into a laugher early on. Led by eight straight points from Tyler Relph, WVU ran out to a ten point lead after a couple of shaky early minutes to leave the visting Johnnies behind.
Five Mountaineers scored in double figures. In addition to Beilein,'s 19, Kevin Pittsnogle scored 14, Joe Herber 13, D'or Fischer 12 and Tyler Relph 11. WVU shot 31 three pointers, hitting 14 for a 45.2% success rate.
