WVU Takes on Stetson in First Game of Continental Tire Las Vegas Invitational

Morgantown W.Va.-

In the first two games of the 2015-2016 season, both Devin William and Jonathan Holton added back to back double-doubles to their resumes. This makes them the 1st WVU pair to do so since Calvin Bowman and Chris Moss in 2000-01.

The Mountaineers look to add to their stats and keep the winning streak alive against the Stetson Hatters from the Atlantic Sun Conference. This game begins the first of four games in the Continental Tire Las Vegas Invitational.

Monday evening the Mountaineers will face Bethune-Cookman at the WVU Coliseum before traveling to Las Vegas to take on Richmond Thursday and either San Diego State or California on Friday.

In their season opener, Stetson lost to Richmond 108-85. On Tuesday, the Hatters took on the Citadel Bulldogs and were edged out losing 94-93. Despite losing their first two games, head coach Bob Huggins still doesn’t take this team lightly.

They can score the ball. They’re really good in transition and they’ve got a bunch of guys that can score the ball.”
