West Virginia students were cranked up for Monday night’s visit from No. 11 Iowa State.

 

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — West Virginia welcomes the deep-shooting Iowa State Cyclones into the Coliseum for a Big 12 matchup.

Join Allan Taylor for in-game updates and updates:

WEST VIRGINIA 102, IOWA STATE 77 (Final)
Remi Dibo scores a career-best 20 (including six 3-pointers) and Staten finishes with 19 points, nine assists and seven rebounds for WVU (15-10, 7-5). Harris and Terry Henderson close with 16 points for the Mountaineers, who can expect a healthy bump from their current RPI spot (No. 72).
WEST VIRGINIA 102, IOWA STATE 77 (Final)
After setting a Big 12 single-game scoring record on Saturday, Melvin Ejim finishes with a meager six points on 1-of-9 shooting. That’s almost unfathomable. Even more unfathomable: West Virginia’s Nate Adrian, Gary Browne and Kevin Noreen outscored him tonight.
WEST VIRGINIA 93, IOWA STATE 63 (3:50 2nd half)
Eron Harris receives a flagrant-two foul and is ejected. Can’t offer commentary on the foul because of WVU’s reluctance to show replays at the Coliseum. (Aren’t they supposed to entice people to come to the games?) Harris leaves with 16 points.
WEST VIRGINIA 83, IOWA STATE 52 (7:25 2nd half)
Melvin Ejim won’t get 48 tonight but WVU might win by that much. Geez, this one has only gotten completely out of hand, and Iowa State looks helpless to curb WVU’s enthusiasm. And Niang just fouled out for the sixth time this season, finishing with 17 points. … WVU is 11-of-20 from 3-point range, including 4-of-6 by Remi Dibo.
WEST VIRGINIA 77, IOWA STATE 50 (9:23 2nd half)
Whatever comeback plans the Cyclones made at intermission probably didn’t involve shooting 26 percent in the second half. Meanwhile, Nate Adrian just had an overplay steal that led to a breakaway layup and he followed it up with a blocked shot on the ensuing possession. Infectious joy spreading throughout the Mountaineers.
WEST VIRGINIA 71, IOWA STATE 48 (11:47 2nd half)
Were the Cyclones No. 7 in the RPI or 307? Hoiberg’s crew is getting absolutely handled by WVU, and even though you keep waiting for a rally, the lead has only expanded. What’s more, Georges Niang (17 points) has picked up four fouls.
WEST VIRGINIA 52, IOWA STATE 33 (halftime)
This one looks like blowout, but no team in the Big 12 is better equipped to come from behind than Iowa State, which plays fast and can bombard you with 3s. The Cyclones were just 1-of-11 from deep in the opening half and shot only 38 percent. Ejim scored four points on 1-of-7 shooting.
WEST VIRGINIA 52, IOWA STATE 33 (halftime)
Juwan Staten drives the lane with 3 seconds left to put West Virginia up by 19 in what was the Mountaineers’ best half of the season—maybe of the last two seasons. Staten has 11 points, seven assists and zero turnovers thus far, but he’s just part of the story. Terry Henderson has 13 points and Eron Harris nine for WVU, which is shootong 50 percent from the floor.
WEST VIRGINIA 30, IOWA STATE 16 (8:19 first half)
Terry Henderson has 11 early points on 3-of-4 3-point shooting, continuing his home/road Jekyll/Hyde tendency. West Virginia is 5-of-8 overall from 3, while Iowa State—the Big 12′s leader in 3-point field goals—is 0-of-6. … WVU also leads 16-11 in rebounding, thanks to five from Brandon Watkins.
WEST VIRGINIA 25, IOWA STATE 14 (9:55 first half)
The Mountaineers are on a 12-0 run, a stretch during which Iowa State coach Fred Hoiberg has expended two timeouts. Four WVU players have scored during the run.
IOWA STATE 8, WEST VIRGINIA 4 (17:39 first half)
Iowa State has made its first four shots, including three layups. … Melvin Ejim needed all of 21 seconds to get his first basket—19 more and he’ll match the tremendous performance he produced Saturday against TCU.

    let me go on record right now, we will struggle to win 2 more games, maybe one in the tourney , no ncaa and depending on how desperate the nit is, possibly no post season..
    now everyone get on their bandstands and tell me huggins is a hof coach and he fixed it after the broke it,,, but he single handedly and dragged our team into the mud and we remain, there,
    now if we win the big 12, i will be the first to eat tons of crow,, don' t think that will happen, but we can only hope.

        Mad "hater". Your schizophrenia is showing again.

      • Steve

        • mad hatter

          i take after you, you're more sad than comical

          • GoEers

            Yo don't be mad because other WVU fans called you out for what you are. Why are you so mad that WVU won tonight? Aren't you a WVU fan? You better start watching yourself mad hater. You're buddies the wise talker and okanyday got called out big time for being true marshall fans troll. It is only a matter of time before your real name is found out.

            It's a great day to be a mountaineer wherever you may be!

    • Aaron

      Crow anyone?

      • Dave

        The buffet line is long but not many showing up to eat. LOL at the bandwagon fans and haters!!!!!!!!!!!!

        • Aaron

          As I said in another post, these guys aren't fans of any school. We're they WVU fans, while they might disagree with the direction of the program, they would support the team. They don't. Were they Marshall fans, they wouldn't even be reading these stories, they would save their concerns for Marshall.

          While I'm not sure what the pent up frustrations are that lead them to post in the manner they do, whether it's because they didn't make the little league team or the star cheerleader turned them down, it's clear that they have issues.

          What's truly sad is that the only place they can somehow feel whole is hidden behind a computer screen with a veiled moniker. What’s sad is, I see where these posters are going to take the comment sections of Metro News.

          Sooner or later, someone is going to get tired of the comments and the strife they bring and either eliminate commenting altogether or they’re going to require something like facebook to comment. While I have no problem revealing who I am, I really do not want to have to create a facebook account to comment.

          • GoEers

            very valid points

  • Beaver Sniffer

    Where are all the lovely, fact-based, and supporting comments from the Richard Noggin's of this site? Can't wait to hear how Huggins has destroyed this basketball program and our university as a whole.

    Come forth all ye who are Hat-less, Character-less, Sense-less, and Food 4 Less. We seek your wisdom as to how to correct this tremendous slide in our basketball program. Please tell us...we await your sound, experienced, and mature advice.

    Ah...the joy of victory for we true WVU fans...the agony of defeat for those of lesser character and mediocrity.

  • Woodchuck

    No tv or radio coverage in my part of WV. Thanks again Ollie. You idiot.

    • Troll

      ESPN is available everywhere, thank you Ollie for all the exposure.

    • Dr. Sarcasm

      Tickets were $10 for tonight's game. Where were you?

    • Steve

      Wood chuck if you can't afford ESPN or 10.00 to watch WVU play then you should probably stop posting and figure out how to improve your life you bum!

      • Jeff S

        Woodchuck must be a Marshall graduate. He can't afford ten dollars. His pizza delivery job doesn't pay that much

    • Big easy

      Woodchuck is from Big Ugly....doesn't own a TV or a radio. I know the guy. Williams 2nd cousin.

  • Leroy j gibbs

    Way to go Kevin Noreen!

    • Andy

      Noreen is about the most un-athletic kid we've ever had. Yet, he also plays harder than anyone on the court and is always smart...plays great D too

      • tw eagle

        are you the guy with the ISHMAN handle ?

  • Troll

    This will be a good win if they can hang on.

  • Leroy j gibbs

  • joe

    Where are all the haters at now?

    • Troll

      They don't know which way to turn, WVU rolling and their team is really struggling this year in C-USA. But don't fret the mad hatter will be here shortly with his nonsense.

      • joe

        LOL we must be related because I was thnking the same about the biggest bandwagon fan of all time. He stated that we fans are accepting a mediocre team .When I
        informed "Mr. know it all"He stated it was no excuse

    • mad hatter

      they went back to huntington and pitts.... go eers... we're here to stay.

      • packyeers

        mad hatter

        let me go on record right now, we will struggle to win 2 more games, maybe one in the tourney , no ncaa and depending on how desperate the nit is, possibly no post season..

      • Steve

        Mad hater....the biggest Marshall fan troll. Make no doubt about he is a no good troll!!

        • mad hatter

          • GoEers

            Hey mad hater win you saw Dre Kane on tvfor the first time did you get on your knees and open your mouth??

            I've heard that you Marshall fans absolutely worship him. I can see why. He left MU in order to get national exposure.

            You're a disgrace mad hater...a disgrace to Marshall and a disgrace as a human being. As a troll you are the lowest form of life!!

  • Billy
