Mountaineers romp to record start

From Staff Reports

MOON TOWNSHIP, Pa. - West Virginia shot a school-record 71.7 percent from the floor on the way to a 114-45 blowout win at Robert Morris Saturday afternoon.

Guard Kate Bulger made 11-of-14 field goal attempts for a season-high 29 points. Sherell Sowho contributed 18, Liz Holbrook and Janelle Dunlap came off the bench to score 15 and 14 points, and Michelle Carter added 11 for the Mountaineers, now 6-0.

Bulger now shows 936 career points and needs 64 more to become the school's 21st 1,000-point scorer.

West Virginia's six victories to start the season is a school record, topping 5-0 starts in 1987 and 1989.

The torrid shooting Mountaineers made 43-of-60 field goal attempts and all but one Mountaineer player hit better than 50 percent of their field goal attempts. WVU was an impressive nine-of-13 from three-point range (69.2 percent).

Candace John led Robert Morris with 15 points.

West Virginia led 57-22 at halftime.

WVU's 114 points were the most since scoring 131 against Indiana, Pa., on Dec. 7, 1982 and the 16th time in school history the Mountaineers have passed the century mark. Three of those 16 100-point games have come against Robert Morris.

The Colonials drop to 0-5 on the year.

West Virginia returns to the court on Sunday, Dec. 15 at Ohio University for a 3 p.m. non-conference game.
