West Virginia advances

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Darryl Bryant scored 19 points and Kevin
Jones added 17 to help fifth-seeded West Virginia overcome a slow
start and wear down No. 12 seed Clemson, 84-76 in the second round
of the East Regional on Thursday.
The Mountaineers (21-11) advanced to play fourth-seeded Kentucky
or No. 13 seed Princeton, taking advantage on a fatigued opponent
playing its second game in just over 36 hours.
Bryant's four-point play and a long 3-pointer by Jones that tied
it 40-40 at the half highlighted a game-changing 28-8 run that
enabled West Virginia to turn a 10-point deficit into a 57-47 lead.
The closest Clemson (22-12) would get the rest of the way was three
points.
