DALLAS (AP) — Chelsea Poppens had 24 points and 14 rebounds and Hallie Christofferson added 23 points as Iowa State defeated Kansas 77-62 in the quarterfinals of the Big 12 tournament last night. Carolyn Davis had 17 points and Angel Goodrich 15 for the 7th-seeded lady Jayhawks in Dallas, Texas.
WACO, Texas (AP) — Pierre Jackson had 28 points and 10 assists as Baylor finished the regular season with an 81-58 victory over Kansas yesterday to keep the fourth-ranked Jayhawks from the outright Big 12 regular-season title. Even after their worst loss in seven years, Kansas will still be the Number 1 seed for next week’s conference tournament in Kansas City, and now has at least a share of the last nine Big 12 regular-season titles.
SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — Vladimir Sobotka recorded his first career hat trick and Patrik Berglund scored 72 seconds into overtime to lift the St. Louis Blues past the San Jose Sharks 4-3 yesterday. Berglund’s team-leading 12th goal of the season came after the Blues rallied from two goals down in the third period in San Jose.
