Jones is the Big East's leading scorer and rebounder with one game left. If he finishes the numbers leader in both categories, he will be only the fourth league player to do so, joining St. John's Walter Berry (1985-86) and Notre Dame's Troy Murphy (1999-2000) and Luke Harangody (2007-08).

West Virginia totaled its most points since defeating Alcorn State 97-62 on Nov. 17, 2011.

Cleveland Melvin and Brandon Young scored 21 apiece for the Blue Demons (11-18, 2-15), who have lost nine straight.
