College Station, Texas Kansas University's run in the Big 12 women's tournament ended Saturday with a 4-2 loss to second-seeded Texas A&M.;
"We knew coming into the match that the atmosphere would be tough," KU coach Kilmeny Waterman said. "I thought we did a good job of bouncing back from the 6-1 loss that we suffered last week to A&M;, and it really showed that we can compete with this kind of team."
Kansas (16-6 overall, 10-3 Big 12) won two of three doubles matches to claim the doubles point. It was only the fifth doubles-point loss this season for the Aggies.
But A&M; won four of five singles matches three in straight sets to advance into today's final.
