Senior center Rob Summers continued his solid early season play during Saturday's win over the Canisius Golden Griffins.

The senior center from Columbus, Oh. had his best game in a Mountaineer uniform, finishing with nine points, four rebounds, four blocked shots, three assists, and a steal in 18 minutes of play.

Rob also did an excellent job on defense, as he limited Canisius forward Darnell Wilson to just seven points (more than 10 less than his season average.)

NET BURNERS

  • Senior forward Frank Young busted out of his two-game scoring slump to finish with 14 points. Young also sparked the fast break that led to Joe Alexander's rim-rocking throwdown by hustling for a key save that began the runout.

  • West Virginia's defense had another impressive performance. The Mountaineers forced 30 Golden Griffin turnovers, falling four short of the Coliseum record by an opponent, set by Adelphi in 1979. West Virginia's defense held Canisius to just 32 percent shooting from the floor, including an ice cold 3-21 from downtown.

  • Joe Alexander continued his stellar play with a team-high 16 points, including the aforementioned slam dunk. The sophomore also collected six rebounds, and snagged six steals in 25 minutes of play.
