Dibo: WVU can’t build lead and ‘think everything’s going to be easy’

BLACKSBURG, Va. — Though Remi Dibo sank five 3-pointers in a display of the perimeter shooting that made him crucial to West Virginia’s recruiting class, it went for naught as the Mountaineers blew a 17-point lead in an 87-82 loss to Virginia Tech.

“We didn’t stick to our plan, and we let them come back,” said the junior college transfer. “A basketball game in college is two halves. You can’t just play one half as hard as you can and then, in the second half, relax and think everything’s going to be easy.”
