MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – West Virginia University’s women’s basketball team stayed at No. 16 in the latest edition of the Associated Press Top 25 poll, released today, receiving 441 points, nine more than it did last week.
WVU is one of four teams ranked in this week’s Associated Press Top 25 as it joins No. 1 Connecticut, No. 3 Notre Dame and No. 17 Georgetown in the rankings.
West Virginia (18-2, 5-1) is now tied for the best 20-game start in school history, with the 1991-92 squad, after its 74-66 setback at Notre Dame yesterday. The loss snapped WVU’s 16-game win streak, the second-longest in school history, and longest since 1991-92.
West Virginia returns to action Wednesday, Jan. 27, at 7:00 p.m. when it takes on Seton Hall (8-12, 0-7) at the WVU Coliseum. The contest will air on West Virginia PBS (channel 699 in Morgantown; channel 10 in Charleston/Huntington; channel 203 in Clarksburg/Wheeling/Weirton; and channel 209 in Martinsburg) and will also air on MSN women’s basketball affiliated stations with play-by-play announcer Travis Jones and color commentator Jay Jacobs on the call.
