The West Virginia women's basketball team easily handled Kansas, 76-46, with 1,880 in attendance at WVU Coliseum on Wednesday night.

The Jayhawks made only 25 percent of their shots from floor and fared even worse (5-of-25) from 3-point range.

With Ray fighting through a sprained MCL in her right knee and starting forward Kristina King continuing to deal with the aftereffects of a fractured foot that caused her to miss several games this season, Carey managed to get more minutes out of his bench than usual - freshman guard Ashley Jones played 24, while senior Theresa Ekhelar and freshman Destiny Harden also played double digits. "Out of the 40 minutes, I think we did what we had to do defensively and offensively for about 15".

The Mountaineers shot 52 percent. We can't beat Oklahoma playing 15 minutes. "We can get where we need to get".

The 46 points by the Jayhawks marked the fewest allowed by the Mountaineers in a Big 12 game since holding Kansas State to 44 on February 6, 2016. Kylee Kopatich netted 17 points against the Mountaineers and Austin Richardson added 10.

With an RPI of 51, West Virginia needs a strong regular-season finish to secure an at-large bid.

"We can still meet our goals", Carey said.
