MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — Daxter Miles had a career-high 32 points to leading No. 24 West Virginia in a 111-48 victory over Morgan State on Saturday night.

The Mountaineers (2-1) had control from the start, opening the game with a 14-3 run.

WVU finished the game shooting 45 of 77 (58 percent) from the field.

Jevon Carter added 16 points or West Virginia while Beetle Bolden had 13 points and freshman Teddy Allen added 10.

Allen has scored in double figures in all three of his Mountaineer games.

Wesley Harris led all players with seven rebounds for West Virginia.

Sagaba Konate, who did not play in the Mountaineers' win over American on Wednesday, returned to play and finished with eight points and five rebounds.

Lapri McCray-Pace and Martez Cameron led Morgan State (2-2) with 10 points each. McCray-Pace, Cameron and Alec Ennis had five rebounds each.
