McCray’s offensive explosion leads KU women to 70-59 win over Colorado

February 13, 2008


There's little question sophomore wing Danielle McCray is the most talented player Kansas University has on its women's basketball roster.

She officially showed it Wednesday night, snapping out of an offensive funk which has plagued her throughout Big 12 play, scoring 24 points to go with 10 rebounds in the Jayhawks' 70-59 win over Colorado in Allen Fieldhouse.

The win improves the Jayhawks to 14-9 overall and 3-7 in league play. Colorado fell to 13-11 overall and 2-9 in the league.

KU also got 16 points and eight rebounds from the recently hot Krysten Boogaard. Ivana Catic hit two key late jumpers, finishing with 10 points, four assists and three steals. McCray's line also included four assists and four swipes.

The Jayhawks held the Buffaloes to just a 22-of-58 showing from the floor, while KU made the same amount of buckets on nine fewer attempts.

Next the Jayhawks are again at home, looking to avenge an earlier loss to Nebraska as the Huskers come to Allen Fieldhouse for a 2 p.m. tip.
