CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- University of Charleston junior transfer Robbie Dreher rose above three Davis & Elkins rebounders and one-hand dunked a missed 3-pointer by Terrell Lipkins.
On the Golden Eagles' next possession, Dreher dribbled the baseline through two defenders with a spin move, scoring while being fouled.
He converted the three-point play that gave UC a 25-point advantage en route to an 87-56 West Virginia Conference victory over the Senators (1-5, 1-4) on Monday at Eddie King Gym.
This is what UC Coach Mark Downey was expecting when he assembled his team.
"I was talking to Dave Davis, at Newberry, a friend of mine that gave me my first college basketball job and he said, he (Robbie Dreher) hasn't played in a year. You have to be patient," Downey said.
"It's not just going to happen. If you think about it, Terrell Lipkins hasn't played in a year, Aleks Kesic hasn't played in a year, Corey Jackson hasn't played in a year. All those guys haven't played in a long time."
Dreher was playing in his fourth game for the Golden Eagles (6-2, 3-2) and had 14 points, sharing the team lead with guard Hayden Annett.
"Fourteen and five (rebounds) is what we wanted from Dreher," Downey said. "A couple tip dunks, a couple hard drives to the basket, finishing through contact.
"That's good. In a game like this he gets some confidence and gets started in the right direction."
Lipkins, who carried the torch for UC in the absence of Dreher the first four games of the season, had 11 points, nine rebounds and seven assists.
