AUSTIN, Texas -- Sylvia Fowles seemed frustrated and angry. Her LSU teammates looked as if the weight of a tumultuous postseason might finally be too much to bear.But the Lady Tigers saw no reason to give up just yet.Fowles scored 14 of her 21 points in the second half, and LSU rallied from an 11-point deficit to beat West Virginia 49-43 on Monday night in the second round of the Fresno Regional."With my intensity, I got frustrated," Fowles said. "[But] I knew I had to lead by example."Playing without former head coach Pokey Chatman, who abruptly resigned March 7 amid allegations of improper conduct with a former player, third-seeded LSU was in danger of seeing its run to a fourth consecutive Final Four end early when West Virginia led 35-24 in the second half.
