With several members of the team battling coughs, colds and flulike symptoms, Young came off the bench in the first half to injuect a much needed booster shot to the Mountaineer attack.
With WVU trailing 20-11, Young hit the offensive boards for a rebound, then circled back outside to hit a three that narrowed the lead to six. Just a minute and a half later, he took a pass from Joe Herber in transition and buried another three to cut the six-point deficit in half. Young's mini-outburst sparked a 19-4 WVU run that put the Mountaineers into the lead at 30-24, but he wasn't finished yet.
Leading by just one at 55-54, Young grabbed a defensive rebound, got into transition, and again nailed a three to give WVU a 58-54 lead with 6:56 to go. That was his sole hoop of the second half, but it was a big one as the Mountaineers held on for the two point win.
Young added two rebounds and an assist to his career high 11 points. He has yet to suffer a turnover this season.
