Lawrence, KS -- West Virginia's volleyball team could have spent Thursday moping about the previous night's loss at Kansas. Instead, the Mountaineers headed to a Habitat for Humanity site in Lawrence to help build a house.

6NewsLawrence reports (http://bit.ly/1ho8SuB ) the women said working on the foundation of a Habitat home helped strengthen their own foundation. Mountaineers outside hitter Jordan Anderson says the volunteer work helped the players get closer as a team.

Lawrence Habitat for Humanity outreach coordinator Maddi Hinds appreciated the athletes' efforts, calling them "hard workers, so fun, so upbeat and really positive."

Mountaineers coach Jim Kramer says it was good for his players to remember there are bigger things in life than volleyball. This was the team's first project with Habitat for Humanity; Kramer says it won't be the last.
