    Kansas sliced an eight-point deficit to 52-49 with 12:10 remaining on a layup by Aishah Sutherland, but Texas A&M countered with six straight points. The Jayhawks remained within striking distance until the Aggies went on an 11-0 run six minutes later.

    Angel Goodrich led Kansas with 21 points and nine assists.
