A great effort all around. We led almost the entire game, though not by more than 7 until the last few minutes. We played mostly the usual 7, plus a short stint by Justine. Layshia had it going tonight with 28 points, mostly from midrange. Gennifer, Talia, and Reshanda were all in double figures with a mixture of precision and pounding.
Both teams shot very well, except for our dismal 12 for 24 at the line. That's going to cost us some games if we don't get it fixed. Kansas worked the ball extremely well for good shots, and we had to play near our best to beat them. We had only 11 turnovers and out-rebounded KU by 16.
Pretty good crowd, I'm guessing over 2000. This is the kind of game, like the Ohio State game last year, which should bring them back to see more.
The officials called very little in the first half, but neither team played particularly roughly so it was great. They called it a little closer in the second, but still even. A good performance as they didn't affect the game.
