Austin: X Marks The Upset: West Virginia Advances

By Jean Neuberger - March 17, 2007

Xavier never got into a groove all game, and West Virginia, thanks to aggressive defense and 17 second half points from Olayinka Sanni, stuns the Musketeers with a 65-52 win, sending the 11th seeded Mountaineers into the second round to face the winner of LSU and UNC-Asheville.

KEY TO THE GAME: Midway through the first half, WVU made a commitment to attack the glass and beat Xavier to rebounds. The Mountaineers went from being outrebounded 14-6 to outrebounding Xavier 38-30 on the boards.

More to come from Austin, as we'll get reaction to the first upset of the night, and what so far has been the biggest upset of the NCAA Women's Tournament.
