Amy Okonkwo had 19 points and 8 rebounds and Jordan Moore had 18 points and 14 rebounds for the Horned Frogs. Camryn Brown led the way for Middle Tennessee with 19 points. Kaayla McIntyre led Toledo with 12 points. Katelynn Thomas led UAB with a game-high 20 points. Tynice Martin chipped in with 23 points, on of shooting from the floor, for the Mountaineers.
Because of that, Coach Carey wants his girls to receive as much publicity as possible. The Mountaineers will take on in-state foe Concord, but instead of traveling about five hours to the southern part of the state to take on the Division II school, Carey is taking his girls to Clarksburg.
The game is just an exhibition, but it gives fans who live about 45 minutes away from Morgantown a chance to see the Mountaineers up-close and personal.
There is not a large, 14,seat arena in Clarksburg, like there is in Morgantown.
These girls are only a few years removed from high school and will tip off against Concord at Robert C. Byrd High School.
This gives them a chance to go back in time, a little bit, and remember their own high school days. The gym should be packed and ready to go, cheering on Coach Carey and his successful team. It really opened their eyes and helped us bond together as a team. I am so proud of our team.
The flood victims are still in need of assistance and this was another way we thought we could help. Coach Carey, of course, wants to get his team as much support as possible.
Coach Carey and his team should score an easy victory as the Rebels were just a year ago with a record in the Big West Virginia, meanwhile, went and finished third overall in the Big 12 Conference.
Looking at the WVU roster, the Mountaineers return six upperclassmen. Lana Montgomery and Desiree Rhodes are the only two seniors on the squad.
