Kansas returns three starters and seven letterwinners to the line-up, including freshman All-American forward Carolyn Davis. Also returning to the starting line up is sophomore guard Angel Goodrich who was leading the Big 12 and ranked fourth in the NCAA in assists prior to suffering a season-ending knee injury.
The Jayhawks will add five newcomers who will try to make up for the loss of KU all-time great and 2010 WNBA draftee Danielle McCray. The group will be led by redshirt freshman Tania Jackson, who sat out the entire 2009-10 season with a knee injury. A quartet of freshman guards in Charlicia “CeCe” Harper, Brooke Jelniker, Keena Mays and Diara Moore will join Jackson and the returning Jayhawks on the roster.
