Cold-shooting first half sinks KU women at Oklahoma State

A cold-shooting first half plagued the Kansas women’s basketball team at Oklahoma State in a 72-52 loss Saturday afternoon at Gallagher-Iba Arena.

Despite outscoring the Cowgirls in the second half, Kansas (12-14, 2-13) couldn’t recover from its poor shooting in the first 20 minutes. The Jayhawks headed into the locker room, trailing 38-17 at the break, after shooting just 16.7 percent from the field in the first 20 minutes of the game.

Freshmen Aniya Thomas was the only Jayhawk to notch a double-digit scoring performance, ending the day with 12 points.

A trio of Cowgirls led the charge for Oklahoma State. Sophomore Vivian Gray and Braxtin Miller each fell just shy of notching double-doubles, as Gray finished with 26 points and eight rebounds, while Miller chipped in 16 points and nine rebounds. Freshman Kassidy De Lapp added 10 points and six rebounds.

Kansas hosts TCU at 7 p.m. Wednesday.
