Harris with 33, W. Virginia beats Duquesne 96-83

MORGANTOWN, W. Va. (AP) -- Eron Harris and two other West
Virginia players scored their career-highs Sunday to beat
Duquesne 96-83.

Harris scored 33 points, Juwan Staten scored 28 and Devin
Williams, a true freshman, finished with 18, supplying 79 of the
Mountaineers' point total and avenging a 2012-13 season loss
against Duquesne.

The Dukes had dealt West Virginia a 60-56 defeat in Pittsburgh,
and the Mountaineers went on to finish 13-19 for the 2012-13

Harris, a sophomore connected on 12-of-19 field goals, including
6-of-8 from behind the 3-point arc and pulled down six rebounds
against Duquesne (1-2). Harris' previous best (25 points) came
on Feb. 27, 2013 against Baylor.

Staten connected on 7-of-11 field goals and hit a career-best
12-of-17 free throws for West Virginia (2-1).

Williams scored 8 of 10 on field goal attempts. He grabbed 10
boards in just his third game all-time.

Duquesne closed to 75-71 with 7:30 left, but Harris and Terry
Henderson knocked down triples to send the Mountaineers ahead
81-71. The Dukes put two scorers in double figures-Ovie Soko
(19) and Dominique McKoy (13).

West Virginia had the first half in hand 49-39 with 11 seconds
left-but Duquesne sharp-shooter Micah Mason accomplished a
four-point-play to cut the Mountaineer lead to six at
intermission. WVU's largest lead was 17 at the game's 2:20 mark.

The Mountaineers shot 33 of 56 from the field (59 percent) and
had only eight able-bodied scholarship players for the game.
West Virginia is 67-3 at home against non-conference teams in
the last nine years, including 48 of its last 49 games.

The Mountaineers are 99-6 under Coach Bob Huggins when posting a
higher shooting percentage than its opponent. Duquesne was 45.5
percent (30 of 66) from the floor.

For Huggins, it was his 725th all-time win against 287 losses.
Those 725 put him ahead of Ray Meyer for 18th place all time
among NCAA Division I coaches. Huggins is the third winningest
active head coach behind Mike Krzyzewski and Jim Boeheim.
