The Mountaineers (8-19, 4-10) got 11 rebounds each from Tommy Spagnolo and Michael Obacha, and had 21 on the offensive glass, but couldn't overcome 19-of-61 shooting for 31.1 percent. Spagnolo scored 16 points, Tab Hamilton 12 and Jay Canty 10.

Leading 61-50 in the last 1 1/2 minutes, Larry Wideman scored a pair of fast-breaks layups in a 7-0 spurt that left the Paladins up 17 points with 30 seconds left.
