Staten leads WVU past VMI

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – 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.

Duquesne edges Appalachian St.

BOONE, N.C. – Jerry Jones scored a career-high 22 points and Quevyn Winters hit a go-ahead 3-pointer with 31 seconds left as Duquesne evaded an Appalachian State comeback attempt for a 73-72, nonconference win Wednesday night.

The Dukes (3-3) led 47-33 at halftime, but the Mountaineers (1-5) opened the second half on an 18-4 run to tie the game 51-all on Nathan Healy’s 3-pointer with 11:08 to play.

The teams exchanged the lead nine times over the final 11 minutes, with Winters’ 3-ball proving the decisive blow. Jones hit two free throws with 15 seconds left before Jay Canty made a layup to set the final score.

Jones netted his points on 8-of-10 shooting, including 3 of 5 from beyond the arc, and also had three steals.
