The WVU basketball team has a great shot to win the WNIT. Head coach Mike Carey and his charges would have preferred to be playing for a national title, but there is still a chance to get some hardware back to Morgantown.
The team accomplishments mean more than any individual awards, but it is still a good time to recognize a special player to the WVU women’s basketball program. Without the contributions of Teana Muldrow, the Mountaineers would not still be playing this season.
Recently, Muldrow was honored with an All-American distinction, according to WVUsports.com. She is a 2018 Associate Press All-American Honorable Mention.
She has definitely been the most valuable player for the Mountaineers. Her height and overall athleticism stand out so much, especially when playing against the best-of-the-best in the Big 12 Conference.
Her confidence and talented skill set have transferred into the WNIT where she is heads above the competition. This year, she has led the team with more than 18 points and eight rebounds per contest. She has put together an intriguing streak of double-double performances.
Muldrow’s inside presence has been a boost to the a team that is heavily stacked with talented guards. She helps offset the perimeter attack by being a reliable force down low. Her court awareness is unmatched and she helps get the ball into the hands of the team’s best playmakers.
She has been one of the most reliable players in WVU basketball history and actually leads the program in games played. If she has it in her to play two more, the Mountaineers will be in the WNIT Championship Game.
Under Coach Carey the Mountaineers have built a solid program that rivals any other in the country, besides Connecticut. The Huskies are in the Final Four of the big dance and the Mountaineers are holding down the same spot in the WNIT.
Players like Muldrow come and go, but they still leave a lasting impression on the WVU basketball program. It’s a credit to Coach Carey for bringing in high-class players who will work hard and give their all to West Virginia.
