Senior center Rob Summers had the best game of his Mountaineer career in West Virginia's win over the University of Maryland-Eastern Shore.

Summers had 12 points and nine rebounds, both career bests during his two seasons as a Mountaineer. (Rob spent his first two seasons at Penn State).

All season, Summers has been West Virginia's best offensive rebounder and he certainly kept that title tonight. Eight of his nine rebounds came on the offensive glass. Overall, the Mountaineers grabbed 16 offensive rebounds, and held a hefty 46-26 advantage on the glass.

NET BURNERS

  • Sophomore forward Joe Alexander was his usual productive self, chipping in a double-double of 14 points and 11 rebounds.

  • Freshman forward Wellington Smith was impressive in extensive action against the Hawks. Smith finished with a career-high 12 points, two of which came on a monster jam in the final minutes on which Smith was fouled. The freshman then converted the charity shot for an old-fashioned three-point play.

  • Not to beat a dead horse, but West Virginia's win over the Hawks followed a familiar trend. In all ten of the team's wins, the Mountaineers have given up less than 60 points. The 49 points scored by UMES marks the sixth time this season that West Virginia has held its opponent under 50 points.
