Radford vs. West Virginia results: Mountaineers pull away, 72-62

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

WVU center Aaric Murray led all scorers with 23 as the Mountaineers broke through in the second half.

Radford hung around in Morgantown, but a second-half drought gave West Virginia a 72-62 home victory on Saturday. Mountaineer center Aaric Murray scored 23 as a 9-0 run late in the second half put the Highlanders away for good. Guard Gary Browne scored five of the nine points to grab a lead that WVU would not relinquish.

The Moutaineers were effective getting to the line, shooting 35 free throws and making 25 of them. Radford managed just 16 attempts, and had three guys in foul trouble. Curry was 7-10 from the charity stripe, and Eron Harris was 4-4 off the bench.

West Virginia improves to 6-5 on the season and remains undefeated at home at 4-0. The Mountaineers have one more non-conference game, Dec. 30 against Eastern Kentucky. They start their Big 12 regular season schedule Jan. 5 against Oklahoma. WVU is entering its first season as members of the Big 12 Conference.
