MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Teddy Allen scored a career-high 24 points and grabbed nine rebounds as No. 10 West Virginia beat winless Coppin State, 77-38, on Wednesday night.

The Mountaineers (10-1) struggled in the first 10 minutes of the game, shooting 5 of 23 over the first 13 minutes.

Allen then led West Virginia to a 15-1 run to close the first half to take a 42-18 lead over the Eagles (0-12).

Sagaba Konate played only 15 minutes after picking up a flagrant foul with 8:45 left in the first half, hitting Coppin State's Chad Andrews-Fulton in the face with his elbow. He did not return until late in the second half.

Regular starter Lamont West missed the entire game with a sprained ankle suffered in practice earlier in the week.

Jevon Carter scored 14 points, Daxter Miles Jr. added 11 and Beetle Bolden, who sprained his ankle in the WVU's exhibition win over Wheeling Jesuit on Saturday, returned strong with 12 points and eight rebounds.

The Mountaineers host Fordham before starting Big 12 play on a two-game road swing against Oklahoma State and Kansas State.

West Virginia finishes its home stand against Fordham on Saturday.
