KU women can’t complete comeback in loss at Oklahoma

The Kansas women’s basketball team was within a possession of Oklahoma early in the fourth quarter, but a cold-shooting spell cut the comeback short in a 78-67 loss Wednesday night at the Lloyd Noble Center.

In the second meeting with the Sooners, the Jayhawks (12-11, 2-10) were within striking distance of completing the come-from-behind victory. However, every Kansas run was answered by Oklahoma (6-17, 2-10) to even the season series between the two teams.

Senior Austin Richardson led Kansas with 17 points, her fifth-straight game in double figures, while freshman Aniya Thomas chipped in 11 points for her second-straight double-digit scoring performance.

The Sooners were led by sophomore Ana Llanusa, with a game-high 21 points, while junior Madi Williams posted a double-double with 18 points and 11 rebounds. Freshmen Jessi Murcer and Taylor Robertson added 12 and 10 points, respectively.

Kansas plays host to Texas Tech at 2 p.m. Sunday.
