Women’s basketball bounced from AP Top 25

WVU Mountaineers

WVU women’s basketball has dropped out of the AP Top 25 and is unranked for the first time since Dec. 8. 

The Mountaineers (13-5, 3-4) spent seven weeks in a row in the AP poll, checking in last week at No. 25. But after suffering a fourth straight loss by falling to TCU Sunday, the Mountaineers dropped out of the national ranking. 

WVU won 13 of its first 14 games this season, including a massive non-conference victory over Mississippi State that propelled head coach Mike Carey’s team into the national polls. 

But the Mountaineers haven’t won a game since Jan. 12 against Texas. Since then, they’ve lost to Oklahoma, Baylor, Oklahoma State and TCU.

West Virginia’s next game is coming up Sunday at 2 p.m. against Iowa State at the WVU Coliseum.
