MORGANTOWN, W.Va. -- Kevin Jones scored a career-high 29 points and set a school offensive rebounding record Thursday as West Virginia slammed Alcorn State 97-62.
Jones, whose previous high-point total, 25, came against Louisville last March, finished shooting 13 of 21 from the field and crashing the boards for a game-high 13 rebounds before exiting the game with about eight minutes to go.
