Kansas women’s basketball at a glance (11-26-2014)


When: 8 tonight

Where: Allen Fieldhouse

Who: Kansas vs. Iona

Series: First meeting

Busy time: Bonnie Henrickson’s Jayhawks play for the sixth time in 11 days after going 2-1 at the Naismith Hall of Fame Women’s Basketball Challenge this past weekend.

Streaking: KU senior forward Chelsea Gardner is shooting 60 percent on the season and averaging a double-double (20.8 points, 10 rebounds). She blocked five shots Sunday in the Jayhawks’ home win over Georgetown.

Slumping: Backup guard Keyla Morgan, who brings energy off the bench, has yet to find her shooting stroke five games into the season. The 5-foot-8 sophomore has made only six of 27 field goals — including a 1-for-9 mark from three-point range.
