The women’s basketball team travelled to Municipal Auditorium in Kansas City, Missouri, to play University of Missouri-Kansas City Saturday afternoon.
They took down the Roos 74-67 thanks to a late 13-0 run after trailing for over 23 minutes of the game.
Redshirt freshman center Ayoka Lee recorded yet another double-double in the game with 24 points and 14 rebounds in 35 minutes of play. She was 12-13 from the free throw line.
She also sparked a Kansas State comeback win with a layup to make it a four-point game with just under six minutes to play.
Redshirt sophomore guard Cymone Goodrich then brought the game to within two with a layup, and Lee tied it up with a pair of free throws inside of three minutes.
From there, senior guards Jasauen Beard and Angela Harris gave K-State the last seven points it needed to ice the game, including a deep three from Harris to make it a two-possession game with just 25 seconds left to play.
Harris finished the game with 20 points and was perfect from three-point range, a season-high point total for the transfer guard.
In the fourth quarter, K-State held UMKC to just 12 percent shooting while putting in 29 percent of their own shots. The Wildcats were a perfect 6-6 from the free throw line in the quarter.
Overall, the Wildcats shot 43 percent from both the field and behind the three-point arc, and were over 80 percent from the line for the game. They held the Roos to 8-28 from three and 38 percent shooting overall.
Senior forward Peyton Williams rounded out the three Wildcats in double-figures with 13 points of her own. She also pulled down a team-high 15 rebounds.
The Wildcats have the week off before taking on a top-5 Oregon team in Eugene, Oregon, at 2 p.m. on Dec. 21.
