WVU whips Loyola

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Remi Dibo had a career-high 19 points and four of his teammates chipped in with double figures as West Virginia ripped Loyola (Md.) 96-47 Monday night.

Dibo canned 6-of-8 baskets, including 5-of-7 from beyond the 3-point line, as the Mountaineers (6-2) had their highest spread over an opponent this season.

Dylon Cormier, the nation’s second-leading scorer with a 28.4 average, led Loyola with 11 points.

Terrry Henderson had 16 points, Eron Harris 14, Kevin Noreen 13 and Nathan Adrian 11 for West Virginia.

The Mountaineers’ Juwan Staten, who was averaging 18.2 points per game prior to the tip, scored only four points, but the 6-foot-2 guard cleared a game-high 10 rebounds, his career best. He also dished out 7 assists.

WVU walloped Loyola on the boards, 62-22.

No. 12 Connecticut    65

No. 15 Florida    64

STORRS, Conn. — Shabazz Napier scored 26 points and hit a jumper from the free throw line as time expired to keep No. 12 Connecticut undefeated through eight games.

Napier, limping on a left ankle he hurt during a four-point play with 33 seconds left, escaped a trap around 30 feet from the basket and got off a wild shot that missed but was tipped blindly back by DeAndre Daniels. Napier grabbed the ball and let go a left-handed jumper that went through as the horn sounded and set off a deafening cheer from the sellout crowd of 10,167 at Gampel Pavilion.

Napier finished with 26 points on 9-of-15 shooting including making 5 of 8 from 3-point range.

The Huskies (8-0) and Florida (6-2), which had a five-game winning streak snapped, battled down the stretch exchanging the lead six times in the final 6 minutes.

 

No. 17 Iowa State    99

Auburn    70

AMES, Iowa — Dustin Hogue set career highs with 22 points and 16 rebounds, and 17th-ranked Iowa State pounded Auburn for its sixth straight win.

Melvin Ejim added 14 points and 10 rebounds for the Cyclones (6-0), who are the Big 12’s last unbeaten team.

Iowa State used a 27-5 run midway through the first half to build a 15-point lead. Hogue had 16 points and 12 boards at the break.

Iowa State jumped ahead by as much as 60-33 early in the second half in cruising to its fourth win by at least 29 points.

Chris Denson had 27 points for Auburn (4-2), which shot 35.5 percent and got beat on the boards 47-36.
