Constantini: Beating Texas ‘proves to the whole country that we’re for real’

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — As West Virginia celebrated a 12-6 win over Texas in the series rubber game, third baseman Michael Constantini called it more validation for a program on the climb.

“I think it proves to the whole country that we’re for real, that we’re not just some team that gets lucky once in a while,” he said.

The Mountaineers (26-17, 9-8) leapfrogged Texas and Texas Tech into fourth place in the Big 12 standings with six conference games remaining. They banged out 14 hits and took over the league lead in batting with a .293 team average.

“Our kids are growing up, and they’re getting mature at the plate,” said coach Randy Mazey.
