Duquesne's Jerry Jones scored 16 points, and Derrick Colter added 12 while erasing a 15-point deficit in Tuesday night's 60-56 victory over West Virginia at Consol Energy Center.

Jones and Colter scored the Dukes' final 19 points.

A layup through contact and free throw by Jones gave Duquesne (6-4) its first lead with 5:51 left, erasing what was left of WVU's double-digit lead. And later, with the score tied, 53-53, Colter made consecutive layups. The second gave the Dukes a 57-53 lead with 1:17 left. Another layup by Jones with 28 seconds left pushed the Dukes' lead to six.

“My confidence level went way up,” said Colter, a freshman point guard. “Every game, when it's critical, I want the ball in my hands.”

A 3-pointer by WVU's Matt Humphrey with 16 seconds left cut that the gap in half but a potential tying shot missed seconds later. The Mountaineers also missed three free throws in the final 11 seconds.

Juwan Staten led West Virginia (4-4) with 13 points.

Duquesne had lost eight in a row to West Virginia, a streak that dated to 2002.

The Dukes shot 53 percent (15-28) in the second half, a drastic change from a 23-percent first half. WVU shot just 28 percent (9-32) in the second.

“I think we got a false sense of security when we were up 15,” WVU coach Bob Huggins said.

Rebounding helped Duquesne rally. The Dukes built a 43-39 rebounding edge over the Mountaineers, led by six apiece from Andre Marhold, Kadeem Pantophlet and Martins Abele.

“We knew we could come back,” Duquesne senior Sean Johnson said. “All we had to do was rebound. We learned from that Pitt game. We can't win games if we don't rebound.”

The Mountaineers built a 36-23 halftime lead with 15 points coming from nine Dukes turnovers. WVU guards Staten and Gary Browne each scored 10 first-half points.

The Dukes held a 22-19 rebounding edge in the first 20 minutes but shot just 32 percent (9 of 28). WVU shot a slightly better 38 percent (13 of 34).

Turnovers were key. The Mountaineers had only three and led, 15-2, in points off turnovers. Duquesne's Quevyn Winters had three first-half turnovers, including a sloppy pass at the top of the key that allowed a Humphrey dunk.

That gave WVU its first double-digit lead, 16-6, with 11:59 left in the first. That advantage grew to 15 when the Dukes were held scoreless for four minutes and went nearly five between field goals.

The WVU lead was 16-10 when Duquesne's Jerry Jones scored at 10:59. But the Dukes' next basket, a layup by Pantophlet, didn't come until 6:04 of the first. In between, the Mountaineers built a quick 9-0 run, including a layup and foul shot by Terry Henderson that gave WVU a 25-10 lead.

The Dukes responded with a 9-0 run, including four points from sophomore point guard Marvin Binney. The run narrowed the gap to single digits, 25-19, with 4:11 left.

The game marked the return of former Duquesne coach Ron Everhart, now a WVU assistant. Everhart spent six seasons with the Dukes.
