Inits regular-season debut, the Kansas State women’s basketball team survived a tough test from Idaho State for a 62-54 victory on Friday at Bramlage Coliseum.
“It feels good to get our first win of the season against a team that competed in the NCAA Tournament last season, that was Big Sky champions,” K-State coach Deb Patterson said. “It’s good for our team because we’re still trying to understand what kind of a team we are and the way we want to play.”
K-State started four guards and Brittany Chambers led the Wildcats with 22 points, 10 rebounds and three assists. Haley Texada came off the bench for K-State to score 11 points.
Wichita Collegiate product Ashia Woods started for the Wildcats and finished with eight points, 13 rebounds and five steals. Ashleigh Vella led Idaho State with 12 points.
