MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - A career-best outing from senior guard Katrina Pardee propelled West Virginia to another blowout win against Towson Thursday night.
The Cedar Park, Texas native scored a career-high 28 points on 11-17 shooting. She also grabbed nine rebounds, dished out three assists and grabbed four steals a 90-43 victory.
After the game, Pardee said she focused on improving her defense during the offseason:
Pardee played most of the game out of position, filling in for point guard Madisen Smith, who was injured during the contest. Still, head coach Mike Carey said the veteran continued to produce on both sides of the ball.
“I thought she did a good job at the point. I really did,” said Carey. “I thought she rebounded it well, and she was able to score. She was scoring well.”
As a team, Carey thinks the Mountaineers are playing well defensively. Watch his full postgame press conference below:
