PSR Logo
Williams leads with 16 points and 10 rebounds

West Virginia head coach Bob Huggins was on familiar ground as the Mountaineers took on George Mason in the first round of the Puerto Rico Tip-Off, and WVU made easy work of the Patriots with a 91-65 win.

WVU jumped to an early lead, pulling ahead 14-7 six minutes into the game and only increased their dominance from there.

Sophomore forward Devin Williams scored 15 points in the first half, while 6-10 forward Jonathan Holton netted 12.  Going into the half West Virginia held a 53-27 lead.

The second half would progress no differently with WVU controlling both the game and the offensive boards. The Mountaineers had a 19-8 advantage on the offensive glass.

West Virginia’s Williams and Holton each ended the game with 16 points. Patrick Holloway led the Patriots with 17 points.

The Mountaineers moved to 3-0 with the win, while George Mason fell to 1-2.

Huggins last brought his team to San Juan in 2010, losing to Minnesota 74-70 in the championship game.

West Virginia will move on to face Boston College tomorrow. BC overcame New Mexico in a close 69-65 game.
