WEST VIRGINIA ; 67, TEXAS; 60; WVU Women Reach Big 12 Title Game


Brunt, Cliff, The Charleston Gazette (Charleston, WV)


OKLAHOMA CITY - Bria Holmes wasn't herself Saturday.

All was well Sunday. The sophomore guard scored 23 points to help No. 7 West Virginia beat Texas 67-60 in the Big 12 tournament semifinals. Holmes scored just seven points and made 2 of 8 field goals in 17 minutes in a quarterfinal win over TCU on Saturday. A day later, West Virginia's top scorer made was 6 of 11 from the field and made 9 of 14 free throws while putting the Longhorns in foul trouble.

"I came out today ready and focused again, ready to play again, Holmes said. "I noticed my outside shot wasn't falling yesterday, so today, I decided to attack the basket more.

Christal Caldwell added 15 points for the Mountaineers (29-3). West Virginia outscored Texas 28-14 from the free-throw line to win its 12th straight.

The Mountaineers will try to win the tournament in their second year in the Big 12. Top-seeded Baylor and second- seeded West Virginia shared the regular-season title.

Imani McGee-Stafford, a 6-7 sophomore and an all-conference second-team selection, had five points and six rebounds.

Chassidy Fussell scored 15 points, and Nekia Jones added 14 for the Longhorns (21-11).

Texas coach Karen Aston said it wasn't Texas' best game. She liked the fact that her team kept it close when things weren't going smoothly.

"We really didn't play well, she said. "A lot of that had to do with West Virginia, but some of it had to do with our composure offensively wasn't very good. But I'm really proud that we didn't give up and didn't get to a point where we got dejected.

It was the rubber match in a tight series. West Virginia won the first regular-season meeting 56-49 in overtime at home, and Texas won the rematch 66-63 in Austin. …
