WVU Sports Weekly: Fall sports beginning postseason play, basketball is back

This past week brought a lot of opportunity and a lot of results for the Mountaineers.

Women’s soccer competed in the Big 12 Tournament, losing in the semifinals. Last Sunday, the Mountaineers beat Baylor 1-0. but then fell to Texas 0-0 (4-3) in penalty kicks on Thursday. West Virginia’s fate will now rest on the decision of the NCAA Tournament selection committee, who decides the field for the NCAA Tournament on Monday.

“I thought in the second half we really came out and created some good looks and opportunities,” West Virginia head coach Nikki Izzo-Brown said. “It’s disappointing that we weren’t able to win it in regulation, but I’m proud of the effort we put forth in this tournament to get this far.”

Men’s soccer completed an undefeated home regular season at Dick Dlesk Soccer Stadium. West Virginia went on the road last Sunday to beat Georgia Southern 5-0, then beating Bowling Green 2-0 on Thursday night. West Virginia will now move towards the MAC Conference Tournament before hoping to get into the NCAA Tournament.

Volleyball racked up a pair of wins this week, beating Kansas 3-0, 3-1 at the WVU Coliseum. The Mountaineers are currently fourth in the conference, with three more weekends of play remaining.

Head coach Reed Sunuhara was pleased with the way his team was able to play and the result they got.

“Kansas is a really good team,” Sunahara said. “We are fortunate to get two wins from them, and I thought we played well today. We were pretty consistent, and I am happy about that. I am glad we got the win today.”

Football hosted No. 11 Oklahoma State, but were severely outplayed in a 24-3 defeat. After the first drive, the offense struggled to get anything going, as Oklahoma State was in the backfield all day long. West Virginia will travel to Kansas State this week.

This week, men’s basketball, men’s soccer, football, volleyball, wrestling, and rifle will all be in action.
