Part of the SEC-Big 12 challenge, this is going to be a good measuring stick for us. WV comes in 4-1 on the year, ranked 26 (tied with us and Northwestern) in the AP poll, and ranked 21 in the coaches poll.

They have 4 blowout wins over Coppin State, NJIT, Bryant, and Eastern Kentucky by an average score of 87-43. Their only loss is to a very good Iowa team ranked 14/15, by a score of 84-81. WV had a 22 point lead in that game late in the first half, led by 19 at halftime and 14 entering the 4th quarter, then got out scored 29-12 in the 4th to lose by 3 points.

They don't have great size overall despite starting a 6-6 senior who averages 5 pts/game, but they are experienced, start 3 seniors and a redshirt junior and sophomore, who go 6'6, 6'0, 5'11, 5'9, 5'9. First two players off the bench are talented freshmen who average 9 and 6 points a game. 4 starters average in double figures, Martin and Gondrezick at 18 each, Davenport at 15, Pardee at 14. Those stats are of course inflated by playing 4 easy teams, but Gondrezick scored 22 against Iowa and Davenport 16. Gondrezick is the star, she is a transfer from Michigan where she averaged 15 points as a freshman and was all freshman team B1G and second team B1G. The 6'6 starter is a transfer from Ohio State.

This is going to be a tough team to defend and based on our offensive put out so far not sure we can outscore them. It sounds like a broken record at this point, but we need Sophie and Amber to bring their A games and combine for at least 35 points, and need several others to step up and score in double figures. Would be nice if Schuchts keeps her insane hot hand for another game. At least we will not be outsized by this team.
