KU-OSU women at a glance

Advertisement

Who: Kansas vs. Oklahoma State

When: 7 tonight

Where: Allen Fieldhouse

Series: Oklahoma State leads, 34-30

Head to head troubles

After losing the first matchup 74-70 on the road, Kansas has lost its last 10 meetings against Oklahoma State. The Jayhawks haven’t beat the Cowgirls since the 2012 season, and their last win in Allen Fieldhouse was in 2006.

Streaking

Junior Jessica Washington continued her stellar scoring in Big 12 play in Kansas’ loss to TCU on Sunday. She scored 27 points, which marks her seventh conference game with 20 points or more. Washington leads conference in scoring in Big 12-only games with 20.3 points per game, and is ranked second in the conference in all games with 17 points per game.

Slumping

Junior Chayla Cheadle scored two points on Sunday, and she’s only scored 11 points in her last six games. Even when she’s struggled to score, Cheadle has been consistent on the glass at 4.6 rebounds per game. But KU’s second leading rebounder on the season didn’t record a rebound on Sunday for only the second time this season.
