WOAY – For the second time in January, West Virginia women’s basketball has lost two straight games after dropping a 79-73 contest at Oklahoma State Wednesday.
Mike Carey’s team rebounded from a tough first quarter to outscore the Cowgirls 17-13 in the second, trimming the deficit to 33-31 at halftime. However, Oklahoma State regained momentum in the second half, before holding off a late comeback.
West Virginia (15-4, 3-4) was led by 25 points from Naomi Davenport, which included a career-high five three-pointers. Teana Muldrow continued her strong season with a tenth double-double (19 points, 11 rebounds) of the year. Loryn Goodwin led Oklahoma State with 30 points.
The Mountaineer women remain on the road Saturday when they visit Iowa State.
