UNI women knocks off Kansas State

MANHATTAN, Kan.In a game that was dominated by runs and lead changes, senior Kennedy Kirkpatrick and junior Mikaela Morgan combined to score 42 points off the bench as the University of Northern Iowa women’s basketball team held on for a gutsy road victory over Kansas State, 72-71.

The Wildcats (8-3) had a chance to win or tie Thursday’s game at the free throw line, but Kayla Goth missed both shots from the charity stripe as UNI (4-6) held on for the road victory.

The power-five victory for UNI was its second of the season, with the first coming against Iowa State on Nov. 14. The pair of power-five wins for the Panthers are the most since the 2015-16 season.

Kirkpatrick finished the game with a career-high 24 points, after nailing seven shots from beyond-the-arc.

Morgan was not far behind in points or 3-pointers, after finishing with a career-high 18 points and six made treys.
