— Kansas didn't exactly overwhelm Tennessee-Martin in a 68-56 women's basketball victory on Saturday at the Husky Classic.

The Jayhawks hit 40.3 percent of their shots while holding UT-Martin to a miserable 30.2 percent outing.

"I think we sometimes play to our competition," KU coach Marian Washington said after a cold shooting performance. "Our intensity level really dropped when we started substituting in the first half."

KU (8-3) outscored UT-Martin 29-17 the first half after scoring the first 10 points. Eleven of UT-Martin's 17 first-half points came from the free-throw line. The two teams played to a 39-39 deadlock the final 20 minutes.

"We are going to have to play a lot better against Washington," the KU coach said of today's 5 p.m. final against host Washington, a first-round winner over Liberty. The Huskies are 3-4.

Lynn Pride and Jaclyn Johnson scored 14 points apiece, while Brooke Reves had 13 and Shandy Robbins 12 for the Jayhawks. Nichole Lockridge scored 14 and Zabrina Harris 11 for UT-Martin (5-3).
