LAWRENCE, Kan. – The University of Kansas women’s basketball team won its third straight game in convincing fashion by beating Denver 67-44, Tuesday night at Allen Fieldhouse. The win gives KU 600 victories in its history.
The Jayhawks connected on six first-half three pointers to go into the break with a 41-15 lead.
Kansas shot 51 percent from the field on the game. Junior forward Crystal Kemp missed just one shot, connecting on nine of her 10 attempts for a game-high 18 points. Junior guard Erica Hallman chipped in with 17 points, hitting 3-of-4 from three-point range, while fellow junior Kaylee Brown rounded out the double figure scoring with 11 points. Freshman forward Taylor McIntosh took home game-high rebounding honors for the second straight game with seven boards.
“Overall our offensive execution was good tonight,” KU head coach Bonnie Henrickson said. “I was pleased with how we created a lot of our offense from our defensive play.”
“We have some tough games coming up,” Henrickson added. “We have to be disciplined and committed to playing as hard as we can in each of those games.”
The KU defense played well forcing 16 turnovers and holding Denver to just 33 percent shooting and no fast break points.
The Pioneers had two players in double figures as Sarah Benham and Sarah Cyran each scored 10 points for Denver.
The Jayhawks (3-1) will have a quick turn around as they will return home Thursday to face Washburn. The Allen Fieldhouse tip-off is scheduled for 7 p.m.
