Carolyn Davis leads No. 17 Kansas basketball past Newman

The Kansas Jayhawks bounced back from their first loss of the year with a 97-64 win over Newman on Sunday.


Following their first loss of the year, the Kansas Jayhawks women's basketball team never left any room for doubt creep into their big 97-64 win over the Newman Jets on Sunday.

Carolyn Davis started the charge for the Jayhawks early, putting in the first 10 points of the game herself and finishing strong with a team-high 24. She is only 63 points away from being a top-10 point scorer all time for the Jayhawks -- her 24 points on Sunday moved her up into 11th.

Three other Jayhawks scored in double digits during the big win, with Chelsea Gardner dumping in 17 points, Angel Goodrich putting in 11 and Monica Engelmen adding 10 more.

Kansas had a 51-31 lead at halftime and had leads as big as 36 in the second half. The Jayhawks will get a week off before facing off against Prairie View A&M at home on Dec. 16.
