LAWRENCE, Kan. –
Despite a career-high 22 points from senior Shaquina Mosley, the University of Kansas fell to Border Showdown rival Missouri, 67-57, Wednesday night at Allen Fieldhouse. The setback drops the Jayhawks to 8-17, 2-10, while the Tigers improved to 15-10, 3-9.
Missouri sprinted out to an 8-0 lead, but KU’s rallied back, going on a 15-0 scoring run to take the lead. However, Missouri regained control of the game, eventually taking a 35-28 lead into the halftime break.
The Tigers then held the lead for the entire second half, as KU was only able to shrink the lead to one twice midway through the period. The Jayhawks shot just 28.8 percent in the second frame, while Missouri went a perfect 13-of-13 from the free throw line in the half.
Mosley, who hit a game-winning shot with 0.4 seconds remaining in the Jayhawks’ win over Texas, continued her hot shooting, scoring 20-plus points for the second time in three games. Freshman Danielle McCray finished one point shy of her second-straight double-double, recording scoring nine while grabbing a career-high 11 rebounds. Freshman Sade Morris added 10 for Kansas.
Missouri was led by EeTisha Ridde’s 15 points, 12 boards and 6 assists.
The Jayhawks will next be in action when they host rival Kansas State on Feb. 18. Tip is set for 1 p.m., and the game can be seen nationally on Fox Sports Net.
