West Virginia rolls past Old Dominion 78-60

CANCUN, Mexico (AP) - Eron Harris scored 19 points Tuesday night as West Virginia rolled past Old Dominion 78-60 to advance to play No. 10 Wisconsin in the championship game of the Cancun Challenge.

Harris shot 7 of 10 from the field and led three other Mountaineers in double digits. Terry Henderson scored 14, Juwan Staten had 13 points, nine assists and Devin Williams had a double-double with 12 and 10.

''Juanny (Staten) was really good again tonight,'' said West Virginia coach Bob Huggins.

In his six games, Staten has 47 assists and five turnovers.

West Virginia (5-1) shot 56 percent from the field, including 8 of 19 from 3-point range and led by as many as 25 points in the second half in snapping Old Dominion's four-game winning streak.

The Mountaineers were up by 12 at halftime and extended their lead thanks to 15-of-24 shooting in the second half. They were 5 of 9 from behind the arc in the second half and had their biggest lead with 6:33 left.

Old Dominion won the battle on the glass, 35-28, with 16 rebounds coming on the offensive end.

''Just think what we could do if we could get a defensive rebound,'' Huggins said. ''We keep giving up a dozen or more and we're not going to be able to keep doing that. We can do that and make some shots and win, but we can't keep doing that against good people. That's what we continue to harp on them.''

West Virginia won its fourth-straight game, and played outside of the United States or Puerto Rico for the first time in the program's history.

Aaron Bacote had 20 points, a career-high nine rebounds for Old Dominion (4-2) and Dimitri Batten added 14. The Monarchs struggled offensively, making 39 percent of their shots, 5 of 19 from beyond the arc and just 9 of 22 from the free-throw line.

West Virginia will face No. 10 Wisconsin for the championship on Wednesday.
