A Shawn Dyer basket made it a 12-point game and a Falk basket and Dyer 3-pointer pushed the advantage to 16 at the 8:49 mark.
"They're the No. 1 team in the nation for a reason," said Bob Rukavina, who is in his 24th year as coach at UPJ. "If they have a bad shooting night, they just find ways to win. They're so competitive. For what they've done over the last four years is phenomenal. I don't think you can compare it to anything in the country as far as the wins they put together."
They also dealt with the absence of Harris, who, incidentally, will miss the Wheeling Jesuit game for the third time this season. Harris played his freshman year at Wheeling Jesuit before spending his junior and senior seasons with West Liberty.
The Hilltoppers made up for it with extended minutes for Dyer, senior guard Tim Hausfeld and Goodwin, a redshirt freshman guard.
Dyer played 32 minutes after averaging 20.6 entering the game, while Hausfeld played 27 (19.3 per game) and Goodwin 21 (16.5).
Dyer had 21 points, Falk had 14 and Goodwin finished with 14 points, four rebounds and a steal without a turnover.
"(Cedric's) a big part of it, he's always good at the top of the press, but thankfully we're pretty deep and everybody plays hard, which is how we keep winning," Falk said.
In Pitt-Johnstown's last game in the WVC, Jordan Miller had 19 points, Nick Novak 16 and Cressler 15.
However, Miller - who averaged 6.5 3-point attempts - was 0-of-3 from the perimeter.
"They were chasing me all night, pushing me off the 3-point line," said Miller, who has a team-leading 82 3-pointers this season and was 3-of-4 against West Liberty last week. "When they were doing that, you have to look for other ways to score."
