LAWRENCE For 40 minutes, the Kansas women made Texas look like a middling junior varsity squad. Of course, that didnt stop senior guard Angel Goodrich from reaching another milestone in a 76-38 victory over Texas on Wednesday night at Allen Fieldhouse.
Staff and wire reports
Goodrich finished with 20 points and six assists, becoming the 26th player in program history to reach 1,000 points for her career. Senior forward Carolyn Davis, who already had reached the 1,000-point mark, added 18 points despite playing limited minutes in the second half of the blowout.
That was a little shocker to me, said Goodrich. Its a great honor to be part of that club, but just going out there and playing and getting a win, that felt really great.
Goodrich, who is second in school history in career assists, finished the night with 1,016 points.
Think about how many points shes involved in, KU coach Bonnie Henrickson said. She scores a 1,000 and then assists and extra steals and extra possessions."
Kansas (12-5 and 3-3 in the Big 12) snapped a three-game losing streak a stretch that included a loss to No. 1 Baylor and road setbacks at Oklahoma State and Texas Tech.
If anything, Texas was a good team to get healthy against. The Longhorns (7-11, 0-7) had lost eight straight and were playing without their two leading scorers guard Chassidy Fussell and forward Nneka Enemkpali. Kansas forced 28 turnovers and limited Texas to just 15 field goals on 27.3 percent shooting.
There was absolutely a sense of urgency, said Henrickson, whose squad will host Oklahoma State on Saturday. Desperation in a good way; not in a bad way. I think both teams felt that way. You gotta be able to bounce back.
