RADFORD, Va. (AP) -Darris Nichols and Alex Ruoff both scored 23 points to lead No. 24 West Virginia to a 90-60 victory over Radford on Wednesday night.
Nichols, a native of Radford, was 7-for-10 from 3-point range as the Mountaineers (9-1) shot 51.4 percent from behind the arc. Da'Sean Butler added 14 points.
Amir Johnson had 16 points and 11 assists for the Highlanders (4-9), while Kenny Thomas scored 16 points and Joey Lynch-Flohr added 12.
