West Virginia’s women’s basketball team improved to 7-2 Wednesday night with a 100-60 victory over Kennesaw State at the WVU Coliseum.
Meg Bulger had 25 points in that contest, the fifth time this season she has eclipsed the 20-point barrier. Her best effort this season came back on Monday when she poured in a career-high 38 points against Cleveland State. The Mountaineers won that contest 82-39, and Meg, a junior guard, equaled the school record for scoring in a single-game, tying the mark of 38 set by Christie Lambert against Providence in the 1997-98 season.
Bulger is currently averaging 20.7 points a game, a slight improvement over last year’s average of 19.5, which led the Big East. Bulger’s current figure is the fourth best average in the league at the moment.
The Mountaineers have one more non-conference game (Jan. 1 at the WVU Coliseum vs. Texas A&M-Corpus Christi) remaining before jumping into league action on Jan. 3 at Seton Hall.
