DePaul Vs. West Virginia Final Score: Mountaineers Win 92-75

The NCAA Tournament hopes of the West Virginia Mountaineers couldn't afford a loss to a team as woeful as the DePaul Blue Demons, so it should come as no surprise that Bob Huggins' crew took care of business in a 92-75 win. The victory brings the Mountaineers to 18-12 overall and 8-9 in the Big East, while DePaul falls to 11-18, 2-15.

Guard Darryl Bryant and forward Kevin Jones handled much of the scoring load for West Virginia. Bryant went 7-of-13 from the field and 12-of-15 from the foul line to finish with a game-high 28 points. Jones' performance may have been even more impressive: 22 points and 16 rebounds on 9-of-17 shooting.

Cleveland Melvin and Brandon Young each scored 21 points for the Blue Demons. Forward Moses Morgan added 15 points for DePaul off the bench.

West Virginia out-rebounded DePaul 43-24 on the night.
