WVU opened the second half on a 33-15 run to rally to an eleven point lead, and from there never lead by fewer than seven points in securing their fourth win of the season.
West Virginia's free throw shooting was almost their undoing, as the Mountaineers were a dismal 4-17 from the free throw line. UNCG, however, chose not to begin fouling until just under a minute remained in the contest, so three late WVU misses ended up as nothing more than a nuisance.
WVU was lead by Tyrone Sally's 20 points on 8-9 shooting. Drew Schifino added 15 and Chaz Briggs nine.
