MANHATTAN, Kansas (AP) -- Christal Caldwell scored 21 points as No. 13 West Virginia throttled Kansas State 61-40 Saturday night, winning its seventh straight and holding five of its last six foes to less than 62 points.

After a mid-week drubbing of 12th-ranked Oklahoma State, the Mountaineers (24-3, 13-2 Big 12) coasted through a disjointed game at Kansas State (10-16, 4-11) that saw long scoreless stretches.

Caldwell led the Mountaineers for the sixth time this season, picking up for Bria Holmes, who scored just five points on 2-for-11 shooting.

Kansas State led for the first 5 minutes, then went more than 9 minutes between field goals. By then the Mountaineers were up 20 just ahead of halftime. Drought hit the cold-shooting Wildcats (27 percent) again after halftime, going 10 minutes between Ashlynn Knoll 3-pointers. Knoll led K-State with 13 points.

Neither team scored for the better part of 5 minutes during that dry spell.
