MANHATTAN, Kan. - Shalee Lehning scored a game high 21 points and pulled down 11 rebounds to lead the Kansas State Wildcats to a 81-52 victory of the Missouri women's basketball team Saturday afternoon at Bramlage Coliseum. Mizzou falls to 9-19 overall and 2-13 in the Big 12 with the loss while Kansas State improves its record to 20-8 and 12-3, respectively.
Mizzou had three players in double figures, led by Alyssa Hollins, who had 15 on four 3-pointers and a career high four blocks. Freshman Shakara Jones posted 14 points and eight rebounds while sophomore Jessra Johnson added 11 points and eight boards.
The score seesawed back and forth for most of the first half and Mizzou grabbed a 15-14 lead when Jones hit a two-foot turnaround jumper with 9:42 left in the first frame. The Wildcats upped their offensive and defensive intensity as they reeled of a 15-0 run over the next 5:01 to run out to a 29-15 advantage.
Kansas State kept control of the contest for the rest of the half and entered halftime with a 17-point lead, 39-33, after Shalee Lehning made a driving layup with 9.8 seconds left.
After the Wildcats built their lead to 22, 50-28, at the 15:38 mark, Mizzou responded with a 14-5 run, including six points apiece from Hollins and Johnson, to narrow the Kansas State deficit to 13, 55-42, with 10:53 left in the game.
With the Tigers again down by 13, 60-47, at the 7:58 mark, Kansas State used a 12-1 run to bring its lead up to 72-48 with 4:26 remaining in the contest.
The Tigers close out the regular season when they face Colorado in Boulder, Colo., on Wednesday, March 5 at 8 p.m. CT in a game that will be broadcast on FSN-Rocky Mountain. Mizzou will then kick off the 2008 Phillips 66 Big 12 Championship on Tuesday, March 11.
