MANHATTAN, Kan. — Led by a double-double from senior forward Teana Muldrow, all five starters finished in double-figure scoring as the WVU women’s basketball team avenged a loss to K-State, 75-66, Feb. 20.

Muldrow netted 19 points and 11 rebounds for her third straight double-double and her 13th of the year. She moved into sixth place all-time for WVU (20-8, 8-8 Big 12) with 1,670 career points.

Senior forward Kristina King tied her career high with 16 points, just missing a double-double with nine rebounds. Junior guard Naomi Davenport added 15 points, while junior guard Katrina Pardee had 13 and senior guard Chania Ray had 10.

Muldrow also had all three of the Mountaineers’ blocks, while Davenport had a trio of steals.

WVU shot 54.2 percent from the field, and outrebounded the Wildcats (13-14, 5-11), 37-30. Led by Davenport and Muldrow with four assists each, the Mountaineers totaled 16 on the night.

“It was a sloppy game,” WVU coach Mike Carey said. “I thought, at times, we moved the ball well. We had 16 assists on 26 field goals, so that’s pretty good. We had five girls score in double figures. Kansas State didn’t quit. They came back and made it close at the end and we were able to hit some foul shots.”

WVU returns to the Coliseum on Saturday to face Oklahoma State. Prior to the 1 p.m. tipoff, the Mountaineers will celebrate Ray, King and Muldrow as part of Senior Day.
