Sanni's 20 points helps West Virginia edge Providence

Feb 10, 2008 - 12:05 AM PROVIDENCE, Rhode Island (Ticker) -- Olayinka Sanni scored 20 points and LaQuita Owens added 18 to lead 11th-ranked West Virginia to a 63-60 win over Providence on Saturday in a Big East battle.

Sparkle Davis knocked down a pair of free throws with under five seconds remaining to seal the win for the Mountaineers (19-3, 8-1 Big East), who forced 23 turnovers en route to their eighth straight victory.

Leading 58-57, Chakika Cole made it a two-possession game when she completed a three-point play with 32 seconds remaining. The Friars' Kendria Holmes made three straight free throws on the other end to pull her team back within, 61-60, before Davis sealed it from the line.

Holmes' career-high 28 points on 8-of-16 shooting led Providence (11-11, 1-8), which shot just 36 percent (9-of-25) after the break while squandering a 29-25 halftime advantage.
