WV Tech Beats Ohio State-Mansfield By 100 Points

MONTGOMERY, W.Va. (KDKA/AP) — The West Virginia Tech Golden Bears beat their winless opponents, the Ohio State-Mansfield Mavericks, by 100 points on Sunday, 157-57.

The Golden Bears shot 70 percent from the field and had four players with more than 20 points. They led the Mavericks by 60 points, 83-23 at halftime.

The Golden Bears didn’t come close to the NAIA record for margin of victory, which is held by Oklahoma Christian with a 117 point win over Southwest Assemblies of God in 1981.

The NCAA Division I record for the largest margin of victory is also 117 points. That’s held by Long Island University with a 179-62 win over Medgar Evers in 1997.

The largest margin of victory within collegiate basketball belongs to the NCAA Division III Lincoln University Lions of Lincoln, Pa., with a 123 point win over the Ohio State-Marion Scarlet Wave in 2006.

WV Tech scored 130 of their 157 points in the paint and out-rebounded the Mavericks by 48.

    OSU Mansfield is a branch campus of Ohio State so big deal. WVU should be embarrassed to schedule them.

    Maybe they could schedule a game next year versus Grove City or The Little Sisters of the Poor.

      Read the article again…..It was WV TECH Golden Bears, NOT the WVU Mountaineers.

    Hey moron, it’s not WVU, it’s West Virginia Tech. So it’s 2 peanut schools, and winning by 100 IS a big deal no matter who the 2 teams involved are.
