MANHATTAN, Kan. – Nneka Enemkpali recorded her 11th double-double of the season but the Texas Women’s Basketball team fell to the Kansas State Wildcats, 68-47, on Wednesday night at Bramlage Coliseum.

 

The Longhorns were unable to keep up with Kansas State from behind the 3-point line and struggled to capitalize on their height advantage throughout the game.  The Wildcats sank 12 treys, including eight in the second-half.   

 

Enemkpali’s 18-point, 13-rebound double-double led the Longhorns and Empress Davenport added 11 points for her third-straight double-figure scoring effort.  

 

Both teams got off to a slow start from the field and Texas held a slim 13-12 lead 11 minutes into the game before the Wildcats embarked on a 14-4 run to go up nine.  The Longhorns got within seven but headed into halftime down 11.  

 

K-State opened the second half with a 14-2 run, including four 3-pointers before the first media timeout. Texas finally got on the board with a three-point play from Nneka Enemkpali, but the Longhorns were unable to find an offensive rhythm the rest of the way.

 

Brittany Chambers scored 24 points to lead K-State and dished eight assists.

 

Texas will travel to Lubbock to take on the Lady Raiders of Texas Tech on Sunday, Feb. 17.
