Charleston, South Carolina – The West Virginia Mountaineers (4-1) were up one point at halftime, but like has been the case this season, they struggled early in the second half and got down big.
However, tonight, they fought back, showed tremendous energy late and refused to lose, beating the Clemson Tigers, 66-59.
West Virginia was led by Sean McNeil, who had 15 points, and Taz Sherman, who shot poorly (5-16) but scored 12 points. Jalen Bridges added 8 points and 4 rebounds, and Isaiah Cottrell added 7 points and 2 rebounds.
Bob Huggins moved into 4th all-time in coaching wins in college basketball history with 904 wins, passing former North Carolina head coach Roy Williams.
The Mountaineers will be back in action at home inside the WVU Coliseum on Friday, November 26th against Eastern Kentucky.
