WVU Pulls Away to Score Win Over Lehigh


MORGANTOWN, W.Va.–West Virginia’s men’s basketball team used a push in the last 10 minutes to pull away for a 78-68 victory over Lehigh at the WVU Coliseum Sunday afternoon.

The win lifted the Mountaineers’ record to 8-4 on the season as they now get ready for Big 12 Conference play. WVU hosts Texas Tech on Wednesday in its first league game of the 2018-19 season.

Lehigh fell to 7-5 with the loss. The Mountain Hawks’ losses have been to Miami, Fla. (83-62), Kansas State (77-58) and Yale (97-87).

Freshman point guard Jordan McCabe got the first start of his college career, and freshman center Derek Culver, playing in just his second college game, recorded his first double-double as a Mountaineer.

WVU head coach Bob Huggins highlighted Culver’s slowing down as a key to his success in the post, and noted that his team’s propensity to dribble continues to be a battle to correct.

    Thanks. An important win in a season where such games are more important in gauging players’ roles moving forward, this season more than most, with all of the youth (not to mention the profound hit of the departure of JC and Dax).

    It will certainly be a struggle opening up conference play, but am not giving up on this team just yet!

    For myself, I am intently watching who wants to play and be here, as well as who clearly does NOT, putting self-interests above the team, none more glaring than recently witnessed by some members of the football team.

    Conference play? Bring it on!!!
