Jones fills West Virginia void in first-round blowout of Morgan State
BUFFALO, N.Y. -- The way West Virginia was missing one shot after another, the thought actually crossed forward Kevin Jones' mind whether the Mountaineers would ever hit a basket.After missing their first 11 attempts, the second-seeded Mountaineers eventually found their range Friday -- and have Jones to thank for leading the way.
• Morgan State scored the first 10 points, but the Mountaineers pulled it together to advance to the second round.
• Kevin Jones led the way, scoring 17 on 8 for 10 shooting and pulling down eight rebounds. Devin Ebanks added 16 points and 13 rebounds for West Virginia.
• The Mountaineers had 20 assists and nine turnovers.
• Morgan State had no fast break points and a season-low three assists in the game. Morgan State is 0-2 all-time in the NCAA tournament.
