Dec. 18, 2004
LAWRENCE, Kan. – The University of Kansas women’s basketball team outscored visiting Dartmouth 43-20 in the second half to cruise to an easy 84-51 victory on Saturday at Allen Fieldhouse. KU shot 50 percent from the field in the game.
After hitting her first seven shots of the contest, junior forward Crystal Kemp paced five Jayhawks in double-figures as she scored a game-high 24 points, hitting 12-of-18 shots. Junior Kaylee Brown also had a big day with a career-high 18 points. Senior guard Aquanita Burras added 12 points, while sophomore guard Sharita Smith chipped in with 10 points.
Freshman forward Taylor McIntosh posted the first double-double of her career with 11 points and 10 rebounds. Junior guard Erica Hallman dished out a career-high 13 assists, which placed her in a tie for second on the school’s single-game assist list. Lisa Braddy collected a school-record 18 assists for the Jayhawks in a game against Creighton on Dec. 22, 1989.
“I thought we looked impressive on both ends today,” Kansas head coach Bonnie Henrickson said. “We maximized our offensive possessions with great looks at the basket.”
Kansas forced 18 Dartmouth turnovers in the contest which led to 26 Jayhawk points.
“We came out with fresh bodies after not playing for nine days and we played very well,” added Henrickson.
Forward Ashley Taylor led the Big Green (3-4) with 14 points, while center Elise Morrison added 10. Dartmouth shot just 16 percent (4-of-25) from the field and missed all six of its three-point tries in the second half.
Kansas (5-3) will next be in action Tuesday, when the Jayhawks travel to Omaha, Neb., to take on Creighton.
