West Virginia Lady Mountaineers defeat Iowa State

West Virginia Lady Mountaineers defeat Iowa State

The Mountaineers had multiple key contributors on offense, with freshman forward Teddy Allen leading the team in scoring the third game in a row with 20 points off the bench.

"We were just the better team tonight", Miles said. Konate made two baskets to start a 12-2 run and the Mountaineers never looked back. The experience of his back-court, the intense pressure defense with athleticism at every position, great coaching along with the return of last season's second leading scorer Esa Ahmad next week should make West Virginia the favorite to win the regular-season Big 12 title and a legitimate national title contender from here on out.

Without Carter, though, the Mountaineers took over. There was nothing Lon Kruger and the Sooners could do after that point, and West Virginia finished the game off with the 89-76 win. In that loss, Kansas scored just 48 points which was its lowest output of the season. "The other guys that we are bringing in (are getting better)".

Ray finished with 13 points for the Mountaineers to go along with eight rebounds and two assists. Thus, a team that came in averaging almost 96 points per game was limited to 76.

What makes the Mountaineers so hard to deal with on defense is that there's always a guy right by you no matter what, so drives down the lane tend to not go so well.

With 13:30 left to go in Saturday's contest between West Virginia and Oklahoma, the Mountaineers lost their team leader in senior guard Jevon Carter, who sat on the bench with four fouls for almost 10 minutes.

Auburn (14-1, 2-0 Southeastern Conference) hit 12 of its first 18 shots as it opened the game on a 29-18 run.

WVU led Oklahoma 44-36 at the half. Perhaps more importantly, fellow freshman Brady Manek, who has lived off 3-point chances from the passing of Young, got off just two shots in 23 minutes and did not score a point. In the first couple of possessions, Young wasn't even able to touch the ball, as West Virginia point guard Jevon Carter hounded him the entire way up the court. Rashard Odomes had 11 points and Kameron McGusty 10. In the Sooners' 109-89 blowout Bedlam win over Oklahoma State, the 6-foot, 9-inch Sooner first-year player scored a game-high 28. The paint was controlled from start to finish by West Virginia, with the Mountaineers finishing defensive possessions with defensive rebounds and eight blocked shots as a team.

It was a wild weekend in the college hoops world as three of the nation's Top 5 teams were knocked off by unranked opponents - Ohio State 80-64 over No. 1 Michigan State, NC State 96-85 over No. 2 Duke and Providence with the 81-72 upset over No. 5 Xavier. For Oklahoma, 12-2 (2-1) the team will be back in Norman to take on another likely top 10 team in Texas Tech.

The No. 2 Mountaineers put that rank to test tomorrow night as they welcome in Baylor at 7 p.m.
