— The K-State women’s basketball team fell victim to a determined Wichita State squad on Wednesday.

Behind a career effort from Michelle Price, the Shockers pounded Kansas State 69-46 at Bramlage Coliseum, putting an emphatic end to their two-game losing streak. Price scored a game-high 25 points, Alex Harden added 15 more, and Wichita State put together its most impressive game of the season.

“This is a first for us, beating a high-major program such as K-State,” Wichita State coach Jody Adams said

K-State has lost two in a row after starting the season with victories over Tennessee State and Charlotte. Although this loss was an improvement from an 84-39 setback against Texas-El Paso, Wildcats coach Deb Patterson took few positives away from the game.

“From our point of view we are still just a little too tentative and a step or two behind our opponent defensively,” Patterson said. “We are in response mode.”
