West Virginia remained undefeated at home with a 74-67 win over the Eastern Kentucky Colonels on Sunday.
It looked as though the Mountaineers (7-5) may be in for another slow start, but a 20-4 run in the first half gave them a 14-point lead. That would eventually be extended to 16. Eastern Kentucky (10-3) was never able to get any closer than within nine for the remainder of the half, and the West Virginia lead was 35-22 when they went to the locker room. It may have been a nice start to the game this time, but there was plenty of time for the Colonels to come back.
Gary Browne provided a spark in the first half, scoring eight points during that big run. Browne came in for Jabarie Hinds, who has been struggling offensively lately. Browne was the only player to score in double digits in the half. He ended up with 17 points in the game to lead the team. He also grabbed six rebounds.
