WVU Rolls Wofford; Hokies Next

No. 18 West Virginia went on a 16-0 run early and kept the pedal down on Monday, night defeating Wofford 77-44 at the WVU Coliseum. The win moves the Mountaineers to 11-1 overall, as the Mountaineers will now focus on next week’s meeting with Virginia Tech.

WVU had four players in double figures for the night led by Juwan Staten’s 17 points, who would also add 10 rebounds. Jonathan Holton and Elijah Macon each had 11, while Javon Carter added 10 points on the night.

The Mountaineers would lead 42-20 at the break.

The game was never in question as WVU shot 49% from the field and 31% from behind the arc.

West Virginia also forced 21 Wofford turnovers and held them to 27% shooting.

After a four day Christmas break, WVU will prepare for a Dec. 30 date with the Virginia Tech Hokies at the WVU Coliseum.

Tip is set for 2 p.m. and will be televised on ESPNU.

The Mountaineers will wrap up their non-conference slate next week before starting Big 12 Conference play on Jan. 3 at TCU.
