Congressman Jodey Arrington Courtside For Big Win Against West Virginia Mountaineers

But, even though Texas Tech was favored by 4.5 points, this win for the Red Raiders over a No. 2 team that hit 11 of its 28 3-point attempts is an impressive feat under any circumstance, and even more so considering it now elevates them into the conversation as one of the favorites to win the league.

And, that will be the case at 2 p.m. today when the Mountaineers look to overcome the upset-minded Red Raiders. Davenport led the way with the best statistical game of her WVU career, dropping 32 points and 9 rebounds, while Muldrow added 20 points of her own to go with a career-high 17 rebounds.

"Freshman guard Zaire Smith (6'5" 195-lbs) is second on the team in scoring (10.4) and rebounding (4.4).

"Senior guard Niem Stevenson (6'5" 205-lbs) averages 7.8 points per game and 3.1 rebounds. They combine to average 12 points as a duo. Knocking off the No. 2 team in the country with the longest win streak, and that team just so happens to be a conference rival? The depth of Texas Tech means fresh players for the whole 40 minutes, taking away a key advantage the relentless West Virginia defense provides.

"(Keenan) Evans has done a great job at the point and (Zhaire) Smith is a very athletic player".


"We know that our offense is going to come and go at times, but our defense has always got to show up", Moundsville native Chase Harler, who had seven points, three rebounds and two assists and steals, said. He can also get hot from three-point range.

For the past four years the Kansas Jayhawks have lost in Morgantown and West Virginia is poised to make it five. He averages 17 points per game and shoots 48% from downtown. Following a game of being held in the thirtieth percentile in field goal percentage, West Virginia increases their average by 13.2%. The Mountaineers need to withstand the first ten minutes of the game, and not allow themselves to start the game in a big deficit.

Javon Carter, who split a one-and-one situation two minutes later, knotted the game up at 18-18 before the Mountaineers closed out the half on a flurry.

Tech's struggles continued in the second half as West Virginia was able to establish a double-digit lead early.
