93 to 79 leaves the TCU Frogs in a loss making it the 13th win for the Lady Wildcats in Bramlage Coliseum. Cats leading scorer was Breanna Lewis with 28 points and Zahna Medley was the leading scorer for the Horned Frogs with 21 points.
Halftime Thoughts: It was a good half for the Wildcats, leading the game in points and rebounds. K-State came to play and win, with field goals at 66 percent and 57 percent in three-pointers. Sophomore Breanna Lewis showed her strength, not only in putting points on the board but also with rebounds. She will need to keep this going to grab another win in Bramlage. TCU had a fast defense and Medley’s 15 points on their side, but K-State managed to keep up with them. Defensively, the Cats have done a clean job of picking up with TCU but needed to shut them out.
Player(s) of the Game: Lewis achieved a career high of 28 points and 12 rebounds. Lewis was ranked eighth last year in overall players in the league and is living up to her expectations. Averaging 11.2 points per game, Ashia Woods is the next star player tonight with 21 points and a career-high of 9 assists. This duo was an asset that lead to 49 points combined and a win against TCU.
Game-Defining Event: As the first half came to a close, Junior Deborah Meeks wasn’t about to leave the half speechless. With only one second left on the clock she hit a three pointer, leaving the Wildcats with a half-time lead of 48-33.
Up Next: Next up for The Cats is a face off against the Texas Tech Raiders. Although the Raiders are in an away game losing streak, they did just defeat Iowa State, 71-58. If the Lady Cats can keep up their defense and shoot like they did against TCU, then this could result in another win for The Cats. Tipoff is at 1 pm Sunday, February 15.
