Goodrich guides KU women past No. 23 ISU in overtime
LAWRENCE, Kan. – Angel Goodrich forced overtime with a 3-pointer with 16 seconds left in regulation, then scored seven of her team’s 13 points in the extra session, as Kansas erased an 18-point second-half deficit Wednesday night and stunned No. 23 Iowa State 78-75.
Iowa State looked to have the game in hand after Anna Prins’ layup gave the Cyclones (14-5, 5-4 Big 12) a 55-37 lead with 8:56 left. But the Jayhawks (13-6, 4-4) outscored ISU 28-10 the rest of regulation.
In overtime, Goodrich – who finished with 24 points, 10 assists and five steals – made a jumper and a 3-pointer before hitting two free throws to help seal the win.
Natalie Knight added 21 points and Carolyn Davis had 15 for Kansas.
Brynn Williamson scored a career-high 19 points for Iowa State, while Hallie Christofferson added 18 and Chelsea Poppens had 12 points and 12 rebounds.
Nikki Moody added eight points, seven assists and four steals before fouling out in overtime.
The Cyclones are back at Hilton Coliseum on Saturday for a 1 p.m. ‘white-out’ game against Texas Tech.
