    Associated Press

    AUSTIN, Texas -- Angel Goodrich scored 22 points and Kansas beat Texas (No. 25 ESPN/USA Today, No. 23 AP) 72-67 on Wednesday night to win its Big 12 opener for the first time in six years.

    Monica Engelman added 19 points and Carolyn Davis scored 14 of her 16 after halftime for the Jayhawks (12-1, 1-0), who hadn't opened their conference schedule with a win since beating the Longhorns 70-61 in 2006.

    Ashleigh Fontenette scored 19 points as Texas (10-3, 0-1) lost for the first time since falling to No. 6 Tennessee on Dec. 4.

    Kansas, which came in with the nation's best shooting percentage, extended its winning streak to six games despite shooting a season-worst 39 percent from the field (26 of 66).

    Kansas led 30-20 at the break, but Texas used a late 22-6 run to pull to 70-67 with 14 seconds to play. Fontenette had a 3-point attempt blocked on the next possession and Goodrich sank two free throws to seal it.
