The Kansas women’s basketball team earned a victory Thursday in its first of four games on a 10-day European tour.
The Jayhawks defeated the AMW All-Stars, 77-71, in Paris. The two teams will play again today before KU heads to Switzerland for games on Sunday and Tuesday.
Junior Jessica Washington led the Jayhawks with 13 points, sophomore McKenzie Calvert scored 12, senior Caelynn Manning-Allen had 11 and sophomore Aisia Robertson added 10. Manning-Allen also had a team-high nine rebounds.
Before leaving for France, KU coach Brandon Schneider said he was hopeful the trip would allow the team to build chemistry for the upcoming season.
