Last Time Out
The Demon Deacons held on down the stretch and survived a last-second three-point attempt to claim a 60-59 victory over UNC Wilmington last Wednesday.
Senior Lakevia Boykin led four Deacons in double-figures with 18 points on 3-of-8 from the beyond the arc.
Junior point guard Chelsea Douglas finished with 14 points and three assists. She leads the team with a scoring average of just over 18 points per game.
Sophomore Dearica Hamby had a solid all-around game for the Deacs, scoring 10 points, grabbing eight rebounds, notching six steals and dishing out three assists.
UNC Wilmington's last lead was with 14:20 to play in the first half but the Seahawks were within striking distance all game.
A missed free throw on the Deacons' end led to a final possession for the Seahawks with 25 seconds left. Tawanna Lee found herself open on the wing but her three-pointer as time expired rimmed-out.
Kansas has started the season 2-0 with win overs Idaho State and Southeast Missouri State.
Carolyn Davis scored 27 points on 12-of-16 from the floor in the Jayhawks 68-58 victory over Southeast Missouri State last Wednesday.
