— Carolyn Davis and Aishah Sutherland combined for 32 points and 16 rebounds as Kansas University’s women’s basketball team held on for a 64-58 nonconference basketball victory over Creighton on Wednesday.

Sutherland had 14 points, eight rebounds, a block and a career-high four assists, while Davis contributed 18 points and eight boards.

The two inside players combined for 24 points and 13 rebounds in the second half alone in front of a Qwest Center crowd of 1,758.

Kansas improved to 11-1, while Creighton fell to 6-4.

KU led by as many as 12 points in the first half, but the Blue Jays rallied and trailed by just seven, at 29-22, at halftime.

Then Creighton opened the second half with a 9-0 run.

The Blue Jays led by as many as four, with 13:25 to go, but KU built its lead to 50-43 and held on.

Angel Goodrich put in a season-high 12 points for the Jayhawks.

Kelsey Woodard led Creighton with a game-high 21 points.

Kansas shot 44.8 percent overall, but just 27.3 from three-point range while holding the Blue Jays to 37.7-percent shooting and 29.4-percent shooting form three.

Kansas will close out 2010 with a New Year’s Eve meeting with UT-Arlington.

Tipoff is 7 p.m. at Allen Fieldhouse.

The game with UT-Arlington is December 30, not New Years Eve.

Sadly, the wrong date is also in the LJW print edition today. Think they'll run a correction? If it was a wrong date for a men's game, you bet they would. A wrong date for a women's game? Maybe, if they have room.

This was a GREAT game, and deserved more space than it got in the paper. Plus, none of our women shoved anyone else, none of them got a technical, and none of them got thrown out of the game. How about rewarding the team that represented KU best, with the bigger article and photos?
