Katrina Pardee (22) finished with 19 points, four rebounds, five assists and four steals as West Virginia won 74-60 at Texas Tech.


LUBBOCK, Texas — Katrina Pardee scored a game-high 19 points, Teana Muldrow and Naomi Davenport added 18 points each, and Kristina King contributed 10 points and 13 rebounds as West Virginia’s balanced performance proved too much for Texas Tech, 74-60.

The Mountaineers (18-7, 6-7) led by 13 early, then trailed in the third quarter before putting away the Big 12’s last-place team.

Pardee’s 3-pointer at the 5:33 mark of the third quarter allowed the Mountaineers to retake the lead 43-42.

Davenport took over in crunch time, scoring 11 of her 18 points in the fourth quarter as West Virginia completed the home-and-home sweep.

“Naomi Davenport showed up in the second half,” said WVU coach Mike Carey. “I thought maybe we left her in the dressing room in the first half, I don’t know … but second half she showed up. That was good to see.”

Brittany Brewer’s 13 points led Texas Tech (7-17, 1-11), which has lost six straight games.
