Seniors Make Big Impact in WVU Win

Posted:

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) -- Seniors Darryl "Truck" Bryant and Kevin Jones closed out their West Virginia home careers in grand style Tuesday night as the Mountaineers dunked DePaul 92-75 while hosting their final Big East game.

Bryant scored 28 points and Jones had 22 points and 16 rebounds. Jabarie Hinds added 14 points for West Virginia (18-12, 8-9), which will leave the Big East for the Big 12 on July 1.

Jones is the Big East's leading scorer and rebounder with one game left. If he finishes the numbers leader in both categories, he will be only the fourth league player to do so, joining St. John's Walter Berry (1985-86) and Notre Dame's Troy Murphy (1999-2000) and Luke Harangody (2007-08).

West Virginia totaled its most points since defeating Alcorn State 97-62 on Nov. 17, 2011.

Cleveland Melvin and Brandon Young scored 21 apiece for the Blue Demons (11-18, 2-15), who have lost nine straight.
