Finalist for a national honor, Muldrow set to cap her WVU career

By  | 

MORGANTOWN, W.VA (WDTV) - Teana Muldrow will take the court as a Mountaineer for the 137th time tomorrow night when the Mountaineers face Oklahoma State in the Big 12 quarterfinals. It is essentially a must win game for WVU to play their way into the NCAA Tournament. Whenever the season ends for the Mountaineers, Muldrow will leave the program as one of the most consistent and versatile players Mike Carey has coached.

Teana Muldrow's career has seen her on the winning side of 92 games. Her teams have claimed a Big 12 Tournament crown, two trips to the Big Dance and a run to the NIT championship game. But she says a career highlight that will never be forgotten was a simple act of appreciation from her head coach.

Muldrow's senior season has been a challenging one on a number of levels. She leads the team in scoring, rebounding and blocks but due to a thin bench, the 6-foot-1 forward has been asked to guard post players that have significant height advantages.

The program motto is "Physical for 40". And Muldrow has been asked to play nearly forty minutes a game in conference play, averaging nearly 37 minutes per.

For all her efforts this season, Muldrow was named one of five finalists for the Cheryl Miller Award, recognizing the top small forward in women's college basketball.
