Truck Bryant scored 29 points and Kevin Jones tallied yet another double-double as West Virginia trounced Rutgers 85-64 in Piscataway Wednesday night.

Jones and Aaron Brown keyed a 26-5 West Virginia run midway through the first half to pull ahead 38-17. Brown scored 11 and Jones eight during the game-changing run as the Mountaineers eventually opened up a 51-26 halftime lead

Bryant hit 4-of-5 of his shots from 3-point range and added 3 rebounds and 3 steals in 39 minutes on the floor. He was 11-for-13 from the free throw line.

Jones finished with 14 points and 14 rebounds for the Mountaineers (11-4, 2-1 Big East), while Deniz Kilicli added 16 points and Jabarie Hinds and Brown had 11 each. Hinds led WVU with 7 assists.

The Mountaineers shot a blistering 56.8 percent from the floor, got to the free throw line 37 times—making 28—and never trailed by less than 15 in the second half.

Eli Carter had 19 points for the Scarlet Knights (8-7, 0-2), who lost their second straight since upsetting then-No. 10 Florida.

WVU is back in action when they host Georgetown at noon this Saturday.
