    MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) -- Kevin Pittsnogle scored 21 points and Mike Gansey added 20 as West Virginia defeated Duquesne 86-66 on Saturday.

    The Mountaineers (6-3) hit nine first-half 3-pointers, one off the record 10 set last season versus Louisville in the NCAA Tournament.

    WVU led 48-33 at the break, tying a record for most first-half points this season.

    Pittsnogle and Gansey also led West Virginia in rebounds with eight and seven, respectively.

    Jo Herber and Patrick Beilein added 12 and 11 points for WVU.

    West Virginia scored five 3-pointers from four different players in its first seven shots to take a 21-12 lead with 11:15 left in the first half. The point difference ballooned to 39-18 on Gansey's lay-up six minutes later and reached 21 twice more before the half.

    WVU took its biggest lead, 71-39, on Darris Nichols' running lay-in with 11 minutes remaining.

    Duquesne was led by DeVario Hudson's 16 points. Three other players scored at least 11 points for the Dukes, which start the season 1-5 for the third time in five years.

    The Mountaineers finished 13 of 16 from the foul line, a season-best. It averages just 11.5 free throws per game, among the lowest in the nation.

    Duquesne made all five of its first-half foul shots only to finish six of 12.
