Flashback: at Kansas State [Feb. 18, 2012]
Kansas State halted Texas' Big 12 momentum and held the Longhorns to a season-low scoring total in a 65-45 victory at Bramlage Coliseum. Ashleigh Fontenette was the only Longhorn to reach double figures, leading UT with 10 points and adding five assists and four steals. The teams exchanged leads early on but K-State broke the game open with just over seven minutes to play, closing the first half with a seven-point lead. The Wildcats carried the momentum into the second half, quickly widening the gap to 20 points. Tasha Dickey keyed the run with 10 points in the first nine minutes. Chelsea Bass saw her first game action for the Longhorns since January 28 and scored seven second-half points but Texas would get no closer than 11. Dickey led all scorers with 18. Brittany Chambers and Jalana Childs fortified the K-State attack with 15 and 14 points, respectively, and Mariah White added 10 rebounds and eight assists. Anne Marie Hartung recorded nine points and seven rebounds for Texas. The Longhorns shot just 31.5 percent from the field.
Last Time Out: at Kansas [Jan. 23, 2013]
The Texas Women's Basketball team fell to the Kansas Jayhawks, 76-38, in a Big 12 game on Wednesday night at Allen Fieldhouse. Texas was playing without its top two scorers, junior Chassidy Fussell and sophomore Nneka Enemkpali, who were both serving one-game suspensions for a violation of team rules. The Jayhawks started off on a tear, using an early run of 10-2 and a 25-3 run over the final 7:44 of the first half to amass a 34-point halftime lead. Texas sank just 12 first-half points and committed 17 turnovers that were converted into 20 KU points. UT picked up the pace in the second half, at one point holding Kansas scoreless for more than five minutes, but was unable to cut into the deficit. Senior Nadia Taylor recorded a season-high eight points and, with freshman Imani McGee-Stafford's eight, led Texas in the scoring column. McGee-Stafford and senior Kayla Brewer each posted eight rebounds with Brewer also registering a career high. The Longhorns were strong on the boards, outrebounding Kansas 39-36, including a 21-10 advantage on the offensive glass, which they converted into 14 second-chance points.
