(AP) - Eron Harris scored 19 points Tuesday night as West Virginia rolled past Old Dominion 78-60 to advance to the championship game of the Cancun Challenge.

Harris shot 7 of 10 from the field and led three other Mountaineers in double digits. Terry Henderson scored 14, Juwan Staten had 13 points, nine assists and Devin Williams had a double-double with 12 and 10.

West Virginia (5-1) shot 56 percent from the field, including 8 of 19 from 3-point range and led by as many as 25 points in the second half.

West Virginia won its fourth-straight game, and played outside of the United State or Puerto Rico for the first time in the program's history.

Aaron Bacote had a game-high 20 points for Old Dominion (4-2) and Dimitri Batten added 14.

West Virginia will face the winner of the Wisconsin-Saint Louis game for the championship on Wednesday.
