Kansas Downs Memphis 90-58
Nov. 27, 2010
LAWRENCE, Kan. - - Kansas pounded the glass and shot 57.1 percent from three-point range in a 90-58 win over Memphis (3-3), Saturday. The Jayhawks held a 37-7 advantage on second half points, sticking back a number of their 23 offensive rebounds to lead the game wire-to-wire to improve to 5-0 on the season.
The Tigers trailed 48-29 at the half as the Jayhawks converted 14-of-22 free-throw attempts, while Memphis managed just 8-for-9. Carolyn Davis, who scored six of Kansas' first 11 points in the game, picked up her second foul with 10:18 to play, sending the 6-3 sophomore post to the bench. But that just green-lighted Kansas to start spreading the ball around, getting scoring from five different players, including six straight points at the free-throw line, surviving an over five minute span of time when the Jayhawks didn't hit a field goal.
But Memphis could not take advantage, shooting jumpers from well away from the bucket and out of the Tigers' offensive game plan, connecting on just 28.6 percent of their shots from the floor (10-for-35) in the opening half.
All five starters and one reserve scored double-digits for Kansas, led by a pair of double-doubles from Aishah Sutherland (14 points, 11 rebounds) and 10 points and 11 rebounds from guard Diara Moore.
