Madison Rigdon was at the service line during KU’s 13-0 run to end the first set of a sweep against Texas Tech Saturday and was dazzling. Six of her 12 serves during the run were aces,  meaning that in just one rotation the Pflugerville, Texas native set a Kansas record for aces in a three-set match during the rally scoring era (since 2001). No. 6 Kansas logged 10 total aces against the Red Raiders while improving to 2-0 for the week, 15-2 overall and 4-1 in Big 12 Conference play.

Rosser continued his rise from walk-on to serious contributor when he recorded four total tackles in KU’s near upset of TCU, with all four stops being for a loss. Among his four TFLs were three sacks – the most sacks in a game for a Jayhawk player since 2008 when James Holt also recorded three sacks in the Insight Bowl win over Minnesota. For the year, Rosser now has 4.0 sacks and 7.0 TFLs.

Sophomore men’s golfer Jake Scarrow went from playing as an individual to the fifth man in the Jayhawks’ scoring lineup hours before the team teed off at the Bayou City Classic and made the most of his second opportunity for Kansas. Scarrow shot a 2-over 74 to open the tournament but carded a 69 (-3) and 70 (-2) over the final two rounds to finish as KU’s second-leading scorer and fourth for the tournament at 213 (-3). Kansas won its second consecutive team title, topping Houston by 17 strokes.
