The West Virginia Mountaineers, down 15 points in the 2nd half, found a way to come back and beat the Northern Iowa Panthers in the Cancun Challenge.
Miles McBride led the Mountaineers with 19 points and 5 assists, while Jermaine Haley added 10 points and 7 rebounds. McBride appeared to be the player that the Mountaineers relied on late in the game to come up with big scores in the closing moments.
Survive and advance!
