LAWRENCE, Kan. –
Despite an outstanding effort from senior Shaquina Mosley, who fell just one rebound shy of a triple double, the University of Kansas fell to Texas Tech, 66-65, Wednesday night at Allen Fieldhouse.
Mosley finished with 18 points, a career-high 11 assists and nine rebounds playing all but one minute for the Jayhawks (6-15, 0-8). Junior Taylor McIntosh also had a strong game for KU, tying a career best with 15 points and adding five rebounds.
Texas Tech (14-8, 5-3) led by seven points with just over five minutes to play, but Kansas battled back, eventually using an 11-4 run capped by two Mosley free-throws to knot the game at 63-63 with 1:27 left on the clock.
After Texas Tech made two free-throws, McIntosh converted on a jumper, tying the contest for the seventh time with 39 seconds remaining. However, a LoVonda Henderson free-throw put Texas Tech up by one and Mosley’s attempt to win the game fell short, securing the victory for the Red Raiders.
Freshman Danielle McCray scored 15 for Kansas. KU turned 22 Tech turnovers into 25 points, including 12 on fast breaks. The Jayhawks also grabbed 12 offensive rebounds, converting them into 10 second-chance points.
KU will next be in action when it travels to Texas A&M on Feb. 3. Tip-off is set for 6 p.m.
