WVU advances to the Sweet 16!

Congratulations to the Mountaineers for playing great and beating Duke yesterday 73-67. WVU got a great game from 6'2" guard Joe Mazzulla, who saw a lot of action due to a great adjustment by Coach Huggins early in the game and responded by scoring 13 points, dishing out 8 assists and pulling down 11 rebounds.

and Alex Ruoff, who had 17 points including several big shots in the second half.

Cam Thoroughman played a lot in the second half due to foul trouble for both Da'Sean Butler and Wellington Smith, and the 6-foot-7 freshman, who had 16 rebounds all season and postponed knee surgery to stay with the team in the tournament, grabbed two consecutive boards to keep one possession alivegot 4 big points and 4 crucial rebounds.
