Per WVU Communications: Teana Muldrow and Tynice Martin combined for 50 points, as West Virginia held on for a 77-73 win over TCU on Wednesday evening at the WVU Coliseum.

West Virginia (19-9, 7-9) led by 14 points at the end of three quarters, but TCU (12-15, 4-12) opened the fourth quarter on an 11-1 run to trim the game to two points. Martin banked a trey on the next possession, followed by free throw makes from Muldrow and Katrina Pardee to push the Mountaineer lead back to nine. The relentless Horned Frogs fought back and trimmed the game to three, 76-73, with 26 seconds remaining after an AJ Alix three-point make. Again, Muldrow and Martin answered with three combined free throws to seal West Virginia’s 14th home victory, tying for the third-most home wins in program history.

Muldrow had a banner evening, scoring a career-high 25 points and corralling a game-high 14 rebounds for her seventh double-double of the season. She connected on 9-of-10 from the charity stripe, while making 7-of-11 from the field. With a free throw make at the 5:10 mark in the second quarter, the junior from East Orange, New Jersey, became the 33rd Mountaineer to reach the 1,000-point milestone.

Martin netted her ninth 20-point performance of the year, scoring 25 points and grabbing eight rebounds. The Atlanta sophomore made 10 field goals, including two from three-point range. Martin has amassed 497 points this season, just three away from becoming the seventh Mountaineer sophomore to score 500 or more points in a year.

“Teana (Muldrow) came up big for us,” explained coach Mike Carey. “It’s great that she got her 1,000th point and she had 25 (points) and 14 (rebounds). Lanay (Montgomery) got into foul trouble early and Teana had to play a lot more minutes and did a great job. Tynice (Martin) shot the ball pretty well, just way too many turnovers. We didn’t execute down the stretch, turnovers and all that, throwing it backcourt. We did everything we could to let them back in the game, but at least we were able to get the win.”

Chania Ray, the Big 12’s assist leader, dished out eight assists, tied a career-best with seven rebounds and scored five points. Pardee had six points, with four of those coming from the free throw line.

The Mountaineers shot 41.9 percent (26-of-62) from the field, while the Horned Frogs connected on 42.9 percent (27-of-63). WVU made 19-of-22 for an 86.4 free throw percentage. The rebound battle was handily won by the Mountaineers, as WVU edged TCU, 49-36. West Virginia dished out 21 assists, but committed 22 turnovers in the contest.

West Virginia opened up to a 10-5 lead in the first five minutes of Wednesday’s contest. However, Lanay Montgomery exited early due to foul trouble. The Horned Frogs used a nine-point run to take a 16-14 lead at the end of the first quarter.

The Mountaineers came out firing in the second quarter, knocking down 10-of-14 from the field for a 71.4 shooting percentage. Muldrow and Martin combined for 18 of WVU’s 29 points in the period. A Martin layup extended WVU’s lead to 43-33 with 21 seconds remaining. TCU’s Jada Butts made two free throws to end the half and trim the lead to 43-35. Martin led all scorers with 14 points and Muldrow added 13 in the opening two quarters.

Martin, Montgomery and Muldrow combined for all eight of West Virginia’s field goals in the third quarter. WVU ended the period on a 6-2 run, which gave the Mountaineers a 59-47 advantage.

TCU opened the fourth quarter on an 11-1 spurt, which included back-to-back layups from Amy Okonkwo to trim the Mountaineer lead to 60-56 with 7:36 remaining. Moore made a jumper to cut the game to 60-58. However, on the next possession Martin answered with a three to push the lead back to 63-58. Four consecutive free throws from Teana Muldrow and Katrina Pardee pushed the lead back to nine. TCU cut the game to three with six seconds remaining. West Virginia executed the free throw attempts down the stretch to collect the team’s 19th win of the season.

The Mountaineers play their final road game of the season with a visit to Oklahoma State on Saturday, Feb. 25. The contest is slated for a 6 p.m. ET/5 p.m. CT tip in Stillwater, Oklahoma.
