Kansas women's basketball holds off Prairie View A&M

Nelson Chenault-US PRESSWIRE

The Lady Jayhawks successfully kept a furious Prairie View A&M second-half rally at bay on Sunday, pulling out a 72-60 victory in Lawrence.

The Kansas Jayhawks women's basketball team avoided an upset against the Prairie View A&M Panthers on Sunday, escaping Phog Allen Fieldhouse with a 72-60 victory.

The game was a lot closer than the final score indicates, as the Panthers were tied with the Jayhawks with five minutes remaining in the game. However, Kansas went on a 15-3 run to fend off the Panthers and keep its undefeated home record intact.

Kansas jumped out to a 37-23 lead at halftime, but saw its lead slowly dissolve until, at the 5:08 mark in the second half, Prairie View A&M's Latia Williams hit a jumpshot to cap off a 32-15 run to knot the game at 57 apiece. That's where Angel Goodrich and the Jayhawks took over. Goodrich scored 7 points down the stretch, including converting a three-point play to put the momentum back in Kansas' favor.

Goodrich finished with 19 points for Kansas, while Tania Jackson pitched in 13 points and 10 rebounds.

Williams led all scorers with 21 points in the losing effort.
