KU women’s basketball falls at Creighton, 69-49


— The Kansas women's basketball team saw its three-game winning streak snapped Wednesday in a 69-49 loss against Creighton at D.J. Sokol Arena.

The Jayhawks (3-3) trailed by seven points near the end of the third quarter and never pulled any closer after shooting 37 percent from the floor (21-of-57) and 17 percent from behind the three-point arc (2-of-12).

KU junior guard Chayla Cheadle led the Jayhawks with 12 points — the only scorer in double figures.

Creighton (3-3) shot 50 percent from the field, including a blistering 8-of-11 in the fourth quarter.

The Jayhawks will travel to Alabama on Sunday.

Didn't hear how Caelynn Manning-Allen was, as her condition wasn't known at the time of the post-game interviews. Hope she's okay. Losing her definitely didn't help.

I was at the game last night, I heard something hit the floor, I sure hope it wasn't her head. She did walk through the handshake line with the rest of the team, she appeared to be doing okay.
