After a victory over Border War rival Missouri, the Kansas University women’s basketball team will look to keep its momentum going on the road tonight at Oklahoma State.

The Jayhawks, who have won two of their last three games, take a 17-9 overall mark (4-8 Big 12) into Gallagher-Iba Arena, while Oklahoma State carries a 15-10 overall record (3-9 Big 12). The Cowgirls have suffered back-to-back road losses at Missouri and No. 5 Texas A&M.

Tipoff is set for 7 p.m. in Stillwater, Okla. It is not televised.

KU is 4-6 on the road this season and 1-5 in Big 12 road contests.

The Jayhawks are led by Carolyn Davis (18.7 points per game) and Monica Engelman (11.9 ppg). Davis, a sophomore, was named Big 12 player of the week on Monday after erupting for a career-best 34 points off of 13-for-16 shooting against MU. She also pulled down nine rebounds. Davis leads the Big 12 and ranks second in the country in field goal percentage (66.8).

Sophomore guard Angel Goodrich has really picked it up lately in conference play. Goodrich, who has recorded double-digit assist totals in two of her last four games, leads the Big 12 in assists in league play with 6.6 per game.

Oklahoma State is 13-4 in home games this season (3-3 in Big 12 games).

Sophomore forward Toni Young leads the way for OSU with 14.7 points and nine boards per game.

Kansas has an 11-10 advantage over OSU in games played in Stillwater.

The Jayhawks snapped a four-game losing streak in their last trip to Gallagher-Iba Arena, defeating the Cowgirls on February 25, 2009.
