COLLEGE STATION, Texas — Teana Muldrow scored 24 points with 11-for-19 shooting and had seven rebounds to lead unbeaten No. 11 WVU to a 70-56 win over No. 18 Texas A&M on Dec. 3.

Chania Ray added 16 points for the Mountaineers (7-0), while Kristina King had 14 points, 13 rebounds and five assists.

Katrina Pardee added 10 points. The Mountaineers, the defending Big 12 tournament champions, have won 12 of their last 13 games dating back to last season.

In the second half, Texas A&M (6-2) opened with an 8-3 spurt that included five points from Chennedy Carter to take the lead, 36-33, with 6:59 left in the third quarter.

WVU quickly responded with a 15-2 run that took the rest of the quarter and was bookended with buckets from Muldrow, who entered the game fourth in the country in scoring.

Ray sank a 3-pointer during the go-ahead run and the Mountaineers protected the advantage the rest of the way.

Carter led the Texas A&M with 20 points. Khaalia Hillsman added 13 points to go with 10 rebounds, Jasmine Lumpkin had 11 for the Aggies, which had won four straight heading into Sunday’s matchup.

WVU will host Pitt on Thursday, in a rekindling of the women’s version of the Backyard Brawl. The two teams have not faced each other since Feb. 27, 2012.
