No. 24 Baylor travels to No. 22 WVU trying to earn an important season sweep

MORGANTOWN — The time for ethical victories is lengthy gone — no less than that’s the message Mark Kellogg is passing alongside to the Twenty second-ranked WVU ladies’s basketball crew.

An time beyond regulation loss on the highway at No. 10 Kansas State on Wednesday was a missed alternative, not a pat-on-the-back efficiency.

“We had some lay-ups that we missed, particularly there on the finish of the third quarter that I do know we’d wish to have again,” Kellogg mentioned. “We in all probability may have gotten that lead into double figures going into the fourth. Which may have modified the sport just a little bit.”

The Mountaineers (22-4, 11-4 Huge 12) have exceeded expectations all season, increase sufficient momentum to interrupt into the nationwide rankings after which problem for the Huge 12 title previous to the loss towards Okay-State.


The one setbacks WVU has encountered this season have all shared a standard theme: poor capturing.

That got here into play two weeks in the past when WVU traveled to Baylor — the No. 24 Bears are again on the Coliseum at 2 p.m. Saturday for the rematch — and was held to simply 32% capturing in a seven-point loss. Towards Kansas State, WVU shot simply 35% from the sector.

WVU’s first lack of the season got here towards Texas, during which the Mountaineers shot a season-low 26.7%.

“We have to bounce again from this one for positive,” Kellogg mentioned. “This has been just a little little bit of a brutal stretch for us. We’ve acquired Baylor on Saturday, so we don’t have a very long time to relaxation or take into consideration this one.”

Bouncing again towards Baylor (20-6, 9-6) will merely imply looking for a option to get the ball to drop via the ring a number of extra occasions.

Baylor’s historical past within the Huge 12 hasn’t been to let that occur a lot.

The Bears personal a 23-5 report towards WVU, and in solely eight of these 28 video games have the Mountaineers surpassed 70 factors.

WVU was held to 58 within the first recreation towards Baylor, capturing simply 21 of 65 from the sector and simply 5 of 23 from 3-point vary.

At stake for the Mountaineers is to stay in place to earn a double-bye within the Huge 12 match.

WVU is at present projected because the No. 4 seed, with the highest 4 seeds not having to play till the quarterfinal spherical.

The Mountaineers’ largest challenger to that seed is Baylor, which might be only one recreation behind WVU within the standings with a win heading into the ultimate week of the common season.

Sophomore guard Darianna Littlepage-Buggs gave WVU matches within the first assembly, ending with 14 factors and 10 rebounds, and Baylor dominated on the boards with a 32-21 rebounding benefit.

Baylor led by as many as 13 factors within the fourth quarter, however WVU acquired as shut as 63-58 with 37 seconds remaining.
