One of the first words that comes to mind when describing this year’s Kansas women’s basketball team is “inconsistency.” The Jayhawks have yet to win back-to-back Big 12 games and haven’t displayed the ability to maintain any momentum through the season.

Kansas falls to Oklahoma at home

After taking No. 11 Oklahoma State down to the wire earlier this week, Kansas women’s basketball should have been high on confidence heading into its home matchup versus Oklahoma on Sunday.

Kansas State coach Deb Patterson might’ve said it best when speaking of Kansas junior forward Chelsea Gardner: “She identifies the weaknesses in her defenders and exploits them,” she said. “She’s just a veteran and takes advantage of her opportunities.” Gardner registered 17 points and collected eight rebounds in the first half of the Jayhawks’ (10-10, […]
