West Virginia Vs. UConn Final Score: Huskies Come Back, Hang On For 64-57 Win

The Connecticut Huskies were down as much as 10 points in the second half of Monday night's game against the West Virginia Mountaineers, but Jeremy Lamb and Andre Drummond ultimately proved to be too much in the end. UConn would go on to win 64-57 at Gampel Pavilion.

The duo of Lamb and Drummond combined for 45 of the Huskies' 64 points. Lamb led the way, putting up 25 points on 9-for-17 shooting. The true freshman Drummond didn't fail to impress, however, scoring 20 as well as leading all players with 11 rebounds. The game was his fourth double-double of the season.

The Mountaineers weathered the 55 percent shooting from the Huskies with some high-pressure defense. For the game, West Virginia forced 12 UConn turnovers while only giving up seven. As is usually the case, the Huskies ultimately proved too long and athletic. They blocked nine shots on the night to zero for the 'Eers.
