Dec. 30, 2008
SEATTLE, Wash. (AP) - Shalee Lehning had her fourth career triple-double with 19 points, 10 assists and 10 rebounds and Ashley Sweat scored 22 points as No. 22 Kansas State remained unbeaten with a 73-60 victory over Washington on Tuesday night.
Marlies Gipson added 17 points for the Wildcats (12-0).
Freshman Kristi Kingma led the Huskies (4-6) with 14 points and junior Sami Whitcomb had 13.
The 12-game winning streak is the fourth-longest in school history for Kansas State.
The Wildcats held Washington scoreless for the first 3:34 and led by as many as eight points before the Huskies went on a 7-2 run to close within 31-28 at the half.
Kansas State scored the first six points of the second half to take a 37-28 lead. Washington then ran off seven in a row to draw within two at 37-35 with 14:23 left.
But Sweat got to work during a run that pushed the Wildcats' lead back to eight. Lehning's driving lay-in with just over 7 minutes left put Kansas State up 56-46.
The Huskies got as close as six on back-to-back 3-pointers by Michelle Augustavo, but the Wildcats scored the game's final seven points to seal it.
The Wildcats shot 46.3 percent for the game, while the Huskies hit just 36.4 percent.
