Lady Jayhawks Sweep The Wildcats

For the first time since 2001, the Kansas Lady Jayhawks (5-4, 14-6) swept their in-state rival Kansas State Wildcats (3-6, 12-9).  A close game throughout, Kansas won 89-80 in double overtime in Manhattan.

This was the first game without injured Natalie Knight, who is out for the season with a torn ACL in her right knee.  Six Kansas women played 35 minutes or more in the victory, including 46 minutes for Angel Goodrich and 48 for Carolyn Davis.  It was a monster game for Davis, who paced the Lady Jayhawks with 29 points and 9 boards in her 48 minutes.  She got plenty of help from her teammates.  Monica Engleman had 12 points and 9 rebounds, and Chelsea Gardner added 19 points, 7 rebounds, and 4 blocks to the cause.  Goodrich chipped in 11, including a big 3-pointer with less than seven seconds to go in overtime to push the game to an second extra stanza.  It was the second game in a row Goodrich made a key late trey.

The Lady Wildcats are now mired in the bottom half of the Big 12 Conference standings in 8th place.  The Jayhawks are trying to remain a top tier team in the conference.  Since winning their first two leagues games KU dropped 4 of their next 5.  KU is riding a two-game winning streak as they head to Waco to take on Britteny Griner and the top team in the country, Baylor Bears on Wednesday night.
