MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Remi Dibo had a career-high 19 points, and four of his teammates scored double figures as West Virginia ripped Loyola (Md.), 96-47, on Monday night.

Dibo made 6 of 8 shots, including 5 of 7 from beyond the 3-point line, as the Mountaineers (6-2) recorded their highest scoring differential this season.

Loyola's Dylon Cormier, the nation's second-leading scorer (28.4 points per game) coming in, was the only Greyhound (4-2) in double figures (11).

Meanwhile, Dibo got able backup from teammates Terry Henderson (16), Eron Harris (14), Kevin Noreen (13) and Nathan Adrian (11). Adrian, a freshman, tied his career best.

The Mountaineers' Juwan Staten, who was averaging 18.2 points entering the game, scored only four, but he had a game- and career-high 10 rebounds. He also had seven assists.

WVU outrebounded Loyola, 62-22, including a 29-7 advantage on the offensive glass. The Mountaineers turned those rebounds into 42 second-chance points.

West Virginia connected on 32 of 74 shots (43.2 percent), but knocked down 13 of 22 (59.1 percent) from 3-point range.

Loyola shot 33.9 percent (19 of 56) from the field.
