The 10-0 run to start the game by No. 15 Morgan State is a distant memory. The No.2 Mountaineers blitzed Todd Bozeman's crew the rest of the way for a 77-50 win. It wasn't the best of games for West Virginia, though, who shot just 42 percent. But they were so efficient on the boards, out rebounding Morgan 42-34, that their bad shooting didn't become a factor.
