All-American Seger Bonifant led the Hilltoppers with 26 points, 7 rebounds and 3 steals while David Dennis Jr. tallied 24 of his own and Devin Hoehn would have 11 points when it was all said and done.
Clarion though would force turnovers early and led by 3 at the half and had a lead as big as 6 at one point behind 28 points from Andre Anthony and 16 from Rob Agurs.
West Liberty would outscore Clarion 48-25 in the second half and pulled away to beat Clarion 89-69. The Hilltoppers next play Wednesday when they host Central State University at the A.S.R.C. at 7:30 PM.
