– Junior forward Tania Jackson grabbed her 10th rebound in the final seconds of the game to combine with her 13 points for her second double-double of the season.
– Several Jayhawks nearly joined her with double-double efforts including senior guard Angel Goodrich (19 points/8 assists), senior guard Monica Engelman (11 points, 8 rebounds) and senior forward Carolyn Davis (13 points, 8 rebounds) came up just short of the same feat.
– Jackson and Engelman carried the load to start the game as the duo scored the Jayhawks’ first 10 points as KU built a 10-6 lead by the first media timeout.
– Engelman sunk her first three-pointer of the season at the 11:53 mark in the first half.
– Engleman’s good day kept going as she racked up 11 points, giving her double-digit scoring outputs in consecutive games (10 vs. Newman, 11 vs. Prairie View A&M) for the first time since scoring 11 vs. Oklahoma (1/31/12) and 10 at Texas A&M (2/4/12) last season.
– After Sunday’s performance, Engelman stands just 10 points from joining the Kansas 1,000-point club.
– It took senior guard Angel Goodrich less than four minutes to rack up her first three assists. She finished the first half with seven and the afternoon with eight. Her seven assists in the first half alone tied or surpassed her assist totals in each of the last three games.
– Goodrich cracked the 30-steal mark on the season by swiping two in the first half. She stole three more in the second half to up her Big 12-leading total to 32 by game’s end. Her five steals tied her season-high (vs. SEMO, at Creighton).
– Sophomore guard Natalie Knight recorded a career-high four blocks, doubling her previous career high.

– Kansas responded to the tied ballgame by outscoring Prairie View A&M 15-3 in the final minutes en route to the 72-60 victory.
