Mountaineers knock off VMI

MORGANTOWN — Juwan Staten scored 18 points to lead seven West Virginia players in double figures as the Mountaineers broke a two-game losing streak by defeating Virginia Military Institute 94-69 Wednesday night.

The victory by the Mountaineers (2-3) was the 42nd in their last 43 home games against nonconference opponents.

Staten, a guard who sat out a year after transferring from Dayton, led all scorers with 18 points, but he got plenty of help. Senior center Deniz Kilicli and Aaric Murray, another transfer (LaSalle), finished with 13 points apiece. Reserve guard Gary Browne and Keaton Miles each added 11 off the bench. Freshman Eron Harris and Terry Henderson scored 10 apiece.

Staten’s and Miles’ scoring totals were their West Virginia highs. Staten also had seven rebounds and three assists, and Miles had four steals and two blocks.

“All those guys want to know what they need to do to play,” said WVU head coach Bob Huggins. “If they defend and rebound, the rest of it will come.”

Stan Okoye led VMI with 14 points, D.J. Covington had 12 and Tim Marshall 11.
