Player of the Game - Coppin State

Senior forward Tyrone Sally got off to a hot early start to help West Virginia to a 71-47 win over Coppin State.

Sally hit his first three three-point attempts of the game as West Virginia ran out to a 17-3 lead over the visiotrs from Baltimore. Although the Eagles managed to cut into that deficit, Sally's early binge proved too much to overcome, as WVU recorded its sixth win of the season.

Sally shot 60% from the field, hitting six of his ten attempts, inlcduing four of six from beyond the arc. He added one free throw for his seventeen point total.

"I told Tyrone before the game, 'You are a great shooter, and you need to shoot," head coach John Beilein said afterward. "Today he came out and shot the ball really well."

The 6-7 senior filled out the rest of his stat line quite nicely as well, as he dished out four assists, grabbed three rebounds, recorded a team-high three steals and blocked two shots in 31 minutes of action.
