Kansas women's basketball team falls to Arkansas

The Jayhawks suffered their first loss of the season on Thursday in Fayetteville.

Nelson Chenault-US PRESSWIRE

The Kansas women's team was upset by Arkansas on Thursday night. The unranked Razorbacks beat the No. 17 Jayhawks, 64-56 behind 15 points from Quistelle Williams to hand Kansas its first loss of the season.

Angel Goodrich couldn't be blamed for the Jayhawks' loss after dropping a game-high 21 points on the Razorbacks, but Tania Jackson was the only other Kansas player in double figures with 11 points. Toss in being outrebounded by 10 and it isn't hard to see why Kansas fell in Fayetteville.

The Jayhawks fell behind 33-24 at halftime, in part due to 11 first half turnovers. It was only the second time they had trailed at halftime this season and the nine-point deficit was their largest of the season. It didn't get much better in the second half as Arkansas continued to attack. The Razorbacks became the first team to score 60 points on the Jayhawks this season as part of an ugly night at Bud Walton Arena for Kansas.
