The Lady Bears host West Virginia Sunday afternoon at the Ferrell Center. 

Baylor is coming off a 94-68 road victory over Kansas Wednesday night.

But, West Virginia has been hot, too. The Mountaineers have won their last three and knocked off #18 Iowa State in the process.

Davenport and Martin prove to be threats, but Lady Bears Head Coach Kim Mulkey knows what to expect from them. 

Mulkey said any team coached by Mike Carey is going to be tough, scrappy and physical. 

"They still are a man to man team. I can't find film where they've played any zone... maybe one possession," Coach Mulkey said. "Every time we play them, you know you're gonna have to work to get open on the wing. You're gonna have to work to get the ball in the post, and they just won't back down. They make it as tough and as ugly as they can make it."

Tip off for the Mountaineers and Lady Bears is set for 4 p.m.
