WVU Women cruise to big win over Kansas

West Virginia should have an easy task against perennial Big 12 cellar dweller Kansas.

Kansas had two double digit scorers in the previous meeting between both teams.

"They had wide-open shots, so even though we won, I wasn't happy", West Virginia coach Mike Carey said.

Despite playing in a bulky knee brace, Ray had nine points and only one turnover in 28 minutes. "Out of 40 minutes, I thought we did what we had to do defensively and offensively for about 15".

"Games like that, Coach Carey always says if you leave teams in the game, they're good enough to poop one in", senior guard Chania Ray said. The Mountaineers led by as much as 34 in the third quarter, and shot 67 percent from the field in the first and third combined. "Can't beat Oklahoma playing 15 minutes, can't beat the rest of our schedule playing 15 minutes". "We can get where we need to get".

West Virginia's matchup with Oklahoma is set for 3 p.m.at the WVU Coliseum on Saturday.

Kylee Kopatich led KU with 12 points, and Christalah Lyons and Tyler Johnson scored 10 points apiece.

With an RPI of 51, West Virginia needs a strong regular-season finish to secure an at-large bid. "He wants me to be even more aggressive because we know what we have ahead of us".
