Kevin Jones scored 25 points to lead three West Virginia scorers in double figures Monday night as the Mountaineers toppled Tennessee Tech 72-53.
Darryl ''Truck'' Bryant added 15 points and Deniz Kilicli had 12 for West Virginia (8-2), which has won a season-best four straight.
Jones notched his sixth double-double of the season, grabbing 14 rebounds. It was also his sixth game this season with 20 or more points.
Jud Dillard led the Golden Eagles (6-5) with 15 points and 12 rebounds, and Zach Bailey added 10 points.
The teams traded leads early on and Tennessee Tech pulled ahead 8-7 on a Dillard jumper. But a Jones layup sparked a 13-2 run for West Virginia and the Mountaineers never trailed again. They led the Golden Eagles by seven points at the break and outscored them 39-27 in the second half to seal it.
