Wildcats edge UTSA in Las Vegas

Kansas State used an early second half run and a pair of late free throws from Kari Kincaid to edge Texas-San Antonio 59-55 on Monday afternoon in the Wildcats' final game at the Duel in the Desert in Las Vegas.

The Wildcats finished the weekend with a 2-1 record.

For the second straight game, Kansas State (6-6) had four players reach double figures in points, led by senior forward Ashley Sweat with 14 points.

Sweat became the ninth player in school history to score 1,500 points in her career (1,502) and has scored in 111 consecutive games — every game of her K-State career. This is the eighth time this season the McPherson product has led K-State in scoring and the 45th time in her career.

Also in double figures were sophomore forwards Branshea Brown and Jalana Childs with 12 points apiece. Brown's point total, on a career-best 5-of-9 shooting, was a career-high and was the first time in her career that she reached double figures in points.
