PSR Logo
Devin Williams had 16 points and 10 rebounds as ‎West Virginia‬ beat Maryland 69-59 to advance to the Sweet 16.

West Virginia will advance to the second weekend of the tournament for the first time since 2010, when it went all the way to the Final Four.

The Mountaineers only led by one point at halftime and the game was close throughout the first part of the second half. Maryland leading scorer Melo Trimble injured his head midway through the half and never returned, and the Mountaineers took control from there. Trimble had 15 points for the fourth-seeded Terps.

West Virginia dominated Maryland under the boards on the offensive side, finishing with 14 offensive rebounds.  West Virginia also scored 16 second-chance points.

Maryland turned the ball over 23 times.

Jevon Carter came up big for WVU on the defensive side of the ball having 6 steals.

Gary Browne helped seal the win for WVU by knocking down two big shots from beyond the arc late in the second half. The senior guard finished with 14 points.

Daxter Miles Jr. had 12 points and Jawan Staten put up quiet numbers in the win, adding six points with six rebounds, but moved the ball around effectively and helped open key shots for the Mountaineers.

WVU will face off against the undefeated and top-seeded Kentucky Wildcats in the Sweet 16 on Thursday, March 26, at 9:45 PM.
