MORGANTOWN, W.Va., Feb. 19 (UPI) -- Darryl Bryant scored 24 points and Joe Mazzulla distributed seven assists Saturday in West Virginia's 72-58 upset of No. 7 Notre Dame.

Bryant hit 10-of-12 foul shots, Mazzulla contributed 16 points and Kevin Jones chipped in with 14 points and 10 rebounds for the Mountaineers (17-9, 8-6 Big East), who enhanced their post-season hopes with a key home win.

Ben Hansbrough led Notre Dame (21-5, 10-4) with 19 points and seven rebounds, while Carleton Scott added 11 points and 11 boards for the Fighting Irish, who failed in their bid to match a school record with an eighth straight Big East Conference win.
