It was just the second time since he's been at WVU and the sixth time in his career he's tried more than one 3 in a game. He remains 5-for-37 in his career and 1-for-11 at WVU.
"I thought I was going to go crazy if the second one went down," guard Terry Henderson said. "I almost went crazy when the first one went down."
Without Staten's 3, the Mountaineers wouldn't have cracked 100 points for the first time since getting 110 in a win against Maryland-Eastern Shore Nov. 27, 2007 - which is 2,186 days ago.
That was Huggins' fifth game as WVU's coach.
"That's definitely something we're proud of," said Staten, whose 31 assists and 54.5 percent shooting engineer an offense averaging 89 points per game. "We're definitely scoring the ball more. That's something we're doing great, but we have to continue to pick up the defense. But our scoring is good and something we want to continue to do against every opponent."
Staten reached his average with back-to-back layups in the second half to put WVU ahead by 40 points. Harris had 15 points and five rebounds in 20 minutes and Henderson had 16 points on 6-for-8 shooting in a season-high 19 minutes. Williams added 16 points and seven rebounds, Gary Browne made three 3s to finish with 11 points and Nathan Adrian was active early on the way to five points, five rebounds, three assists, three blocks and a steal.
WVU shot 56.3 percent and made 10 of 26 3-point shots.
The Eagles (2-2) shot 27 percent in the first half, but 55.6 percent in the second. Trey Bussey scored 21 points and Jelani Hewitt added 15.
"I don't think we played near the defense we need to play," Harris said. "Though we got to 100 points, I want to be real critical because right now, this is a preparing stage."
The Mountaineers didn't trail and were never challenged. They led 13-0 before the first media timeout and did a little of everything in an impressive first half. All nine players scored in the first 10 minutes when Remi Dibo's jumper pushed the lead to 36-11, and by then five players had made a 3-pointer.
WVU started 14-for-21 from the floor with assists on 10 of those baskets. The Mountaineers also had five steals and four blocked shots in the first half while committing only five turnovers and five fouls and grabbing 30 rebounds, including at least two from all nine players.
