AUSTIN, Texas –

A lay-up with 0.4 seconds remaining in regulation by senior Shaquina Mosley lifted the University of Kansas (8-16, 2-9) over the University of Texas (16-9, 5-6), 50-49, Saturday in Austin, Texas.

Trailing by one, Kansas called its’ final timeout with 13-seconds remaining. Mosley had a jump shot blocked out of bounds, forcing the officials to look at the TV monitor to see if any time was remaining on the clock. After review, KU was awarded 0.4 seconds.

Head coach Bonnie Henrickson inserted Ivana Catic into the game for the first time to in-bound the ball. The sophomore found Mosley wide open under the basket for the game-winning lay-up as time expired.

Freshman Kelly Kohn led the Jayhawks with 17 points. Fellow freshman Danielle McCray scored 15 points and pulled down 10 rebounds for her first career double-double.

Kohn (10) and McCray (9) tallied 19 of the Jayhawks 22 first half points. After a hot start, Kansas shot just 9-for-31 (.290) in the first half while the Longhorns made 12-of-28 (.429) field goal attempts.

Kansas opened the second half with a 7-0 run to knot the game at 29-all. The Jayhawks switched to a zone defense; forcing the Longhorns to miss six of its first seven shot attempts to open the half.

After being held scoreless in the first stanza, senior Shaquina Mosley propelled the 7-0 run with an assist on a Sharita Smith layup followed by a 3-point and 2-point bucket.

Kansas will play its first of three-straight home games on Wednesday, Feb. 14 against Missouri. The Valentine’s Day Border Showdown between the Jayhawks and Tigers will tip-off at 7 p.m.
