Brittany Chambers scored a career-high 36 points but it wasn’t enough to keep the Kansas State women’s team from losing its fourth straight, falling to West Virginia 66-57 on Tuesday in Morgantown, W.Va.

Chambers made 14 of 25 shots, including 6 of 10 three-pointers. It was the fourth 30-point game of her career. She is one of four K-State players to achieve that feat.

K-State took an early 14-5 lead on the strength of three three-pointers, two by Chambers and another by Haley Texada. The Wildcats held 10-point leads on three occasions in the first half and led 31-23 at halftime. Chambers scored 20 in the half.

West Virginia (17-10, 9-7 Big 12) took control with an 18-4 lead midway through the second half, leading 54-47 with 6:04 to play. K-State (13-15, 4-12) pulled within four points, but never got closer.

Ayana Dunning and Christal Caldwell led the Mountaineers with 15 points apiece.

Kansas State returns home Saturday to play Texas Tech. It will be the final home game for seniors Chambers and Mariah White.
