Player of the Game - Providence

Posted Jan 29, 2005

Tyrone Sally put up a quiet 20 points to help WVU scrap to an 82-78 win over Providence College.

Sally, who broke out of a scoring slump against UConn on Tuesday, continued his scoring ways against the Friars. He hit his first two three point attempts of the game, the second of which knotted the score at 11 early in the first half, then had back-to-back baskets later in the half to help boost WVU's lead to 38-26.

Sally also opened the scoring in the second half with a solid jumper, and scored five of WVU's 11 points in an 11-0 run to give WVU a 61-48 lead. Perhaps his most important points came from the free throw line late in the game, however. With the Mountaineers leading by four at 73-69, Sally stroked two free throws home to boost WVU's lead to six. Sally's two shots set the tone for WVU down the stretch, as West Virginia hit 9-12 from the foul line in the last three minutes to preserve the win.

Sally made seven of his 12 attempts from the field, including three of six from three point range. He was a perfect 3-3 from the line, and also grabbed four rebounds while dishing out five important assists. Also, in a turnover plagued game that saw the two teams combine for 50 giveaways, Sally had just one in 35 minutes of action.
