Monica Engelman scored 21 points and Chelsea Gardner had 10 points and nine assists for the Jayhawks (16-8, 7-6 Big 12), who have won four of their last six games. Kansas led 34-22 at halftime and the lead in the second half never got below seven points.

The all-time series between the schools is tied at 29 wins apiece.
