No. 12 Mountaineers crush No. 13 Cowgirls

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Bria Holmes scored 20 points and Christal Caldwell added 15 as twelfth-ranked West Virginia throttled No. 13 Oklahoma State 77-45, holding the Cowgirls to 25 percent shooting on Wednesday night.

The Mountaineers (23-3, 12-2 Big 12) raced out 14-0 and were never threatened, leading by 18 at halftime and adding an 8-0 run to start the second half on a Caldwell jumper.

Oklahoma State (20-5, 9-5) was led by Tiffany Bias, who scored 10 points on 4-for-13 shooting.

As a team, the Cowgirls connected on just 16 of 62 shots and were an even colder 1 of 18 on 3-pointers for a season-low 45 points.

The Mountaineers, who handed Oklahoma State its first loss of the season 71-67 in Stillwater on Jan. 4, harried the Cowgirls into 17 turnovers.

Asya Bussie added 12 points and 10 rebounds for the Mountaineers with Taylor Palmer adding 10 points and four assists.
