Kansas State Women Continue the Beat-Down

Our men’s team are not the only Wildcat’s on the hard boards who are kicking butt and taking names. Our women are playing fantastic. In the past some of our women’s teams allowed themselves to be pushed around…. whenever we came up against a more physical team we seemed to fade into the woodwork. Not this year---this is a team of stud muffins and I love their aggressive play

Here is a recap of the big win against the hated KU Chickenhawks this Saturday:


Marlies Gipson had 20 points and 14 rebounds on Saturday, helping No. 18 Kansas State overcome a ragged first half for a 64-58 win over rival Kansas.

Kimberly Dietz scored 12 of her 15 points on 3-pointers in the first half and Ashley Sweat added 12 points for Kansas State (16-6, 8-1), off to its best Big 12 start since going 14-1 in 2002-03. Gipson also had four assists and blocked three shots.

Kansas State did its best to collapse on Kansas center Krysten Boogaard, but the 6-foot-5 freshman was just too much to handle down low. Though she barely jumped at times, Boogaard shot and snared rebounds right over the top of the smaller Wildcats, finishing with 20 points and 14 rebounds. Boogaard got the Jayhawks within two with 3 1/2 minutes left on a three-point play inside, then found LaChelda Jacobs underneath with 90 seconds left to keep Kansas within 56-54.

Gipson answered at the other end with a tough leaner over Boogaard, then blocked a shot by Jacobs at the other end. Gipson was fouled and hit two free throws to put the Wildcats up 60-54 with just under a minute left, then sealed it with 26 seconds left, dropping two more free throws that made it 63-56.
