This game marked the first for the Jayhawks without junior forward Carolyn Davis. She suffered a torn ACL and a dislocated left knee on Sunday against Kansas State.
  • Gordon Fieldler, Jr., of the Salina Journal reported that the Bicentennial Center’s basketball court will be named after former Salinan and Oklahoma State head women’s basketball coach Kurt Budke. A really nice gesture by the Salina community.
