KU women can't complete comeback in loss at Oklahoma

The Kansas women's basketball team was within a possession of Oklahoma early in the fourth quarter, but a cold-shooting spell cut the comeback short in a 78-67 loss Wednesday night at the Lloyd Noble Center.

In the second meeting with the Sooners, the Jayhawks (12-11, 2-10) were within striking distance of completing the come-from-behind victory. However, every Kansas run was answered by Oklahoma (6-17, 2-10) to even the season series between the two teams.

Senior Austin Richardson led Kansas with 17 points, her fifth-straight game in double figures, while freshman Aniya Thomas chipped in 11 points for her second-straight double-digit scoring performance.

The Sooners were led by sophomore Ana Llanusa, with a game-high 21 points, while junior Madi Williams posted a double-double with 18 points and 11 rebounds. Freshmen Jessi Murcer and Taylor Robertson added 12 and 10 points, respectively.

Kansas plays host to Texas Tech at 2 p.m. Sunday.

Someone should have never packed this bags to come here in the first place. Its not his fault actually -- this is another one squarely on Zengy's shoulders. But losing by double digits to a team with 6 wins this late in the season??? C'mooonnn!

Almost there, could have won that game, we competed, there is real improvement.......just pick whichever cliche you want and the result is almost al2ays the same...another loss for this team. It almost makes a fan wish for the Coach Washington glory days.

WISH for the glory days of Coach Washington? We should be so lucky; 7 league titles, our only Big 12 title, numerous NCAA berths; we’re a far cry from that. We just lost to a team that has won 6 games, TOTAL; for the year. Yes, we beat them earlier; but apparently, we’re not allowed to sweep any season series (KSU previous). 6 league wins minimum, to keep his job; 4-3 to finish; a daunting task.
