West Virginia Vs. Morehead State: 'Eers Blast Past Eagles, 83-48

The Mountaineers completed in the second half what they had started in the first: an easy walk to victory against the overmatched Morehead State Eagles. The Mountaineers held the Eagles at arms length for the duration of the contest, never being challenged throughout most of the game.

Kevin Jones led the way, as usual, with a double double, tallying more than twenty points for the third time in four games so far this season.  Jones finished with 23 points shooting 9 for 15 from the floor and was one of four Mountaineers to score double digit points.  He was joined in double digits by fellow upperclassmen Truck Bryant, who had 14, and Deniz Kilicli, who had 10 points.  Freshman guard Gary Browne also finished with 10 points.

Logan county native walk on Paul Williamson hit a couple of threes in garbage time to the delight of the central West Virginia crowd.

West Virginia was more productive from the free throw stripe in the second half, going 10 for 10. The effort "improved" their free throw shooting percentage to just over 61% for the game.

As in the first half, the Mountaineers exploded out of the gates in the second half and then coasting until the final buzzer, and a score of 83-48.  The Mountaineers are off for the Thanksgiving holiday, and will be back in action Monday night at home against the Akron Zips.
