Goodrich, Jayhawks win NCAA opener

BOULDER, Colo. — Angel Goodrich and the Kansas Jayhawks did it again.

A year after making an unexpected Sweet 16 run, No. 12 seed Kansas is a win away from reaching the same milestone this year after blowing out No. 5 Colorado, 67-52, at the Coors Events Center on Saturday evening.

Goodrich — a former standout at Sequoyah High School — played all 40 minutes and racked up 14 points and eight assists to guide the Jayhawks (19-13) into the Round of 32, where they’ll face No. 4 South Carolina on Monday on the University of Colorado’s campus at 7:30 p.m.

The Gamecocks advanced thanks to a 74-52 victory over South Dakota State.

For Kansas, scoring balance was the key in the opening round of the NCAA tournament. The Jayhawks had five players — Carolyn Davis (14), Goodrich, Chelsea Gardner (12), CeCe Harper (12), Monica Engelman (10) — score in double figures.

Kansas also shot 45.9 percent (28 of 61) from the field compared to Colorado’s 16-of-63 (25.4 percent) effort.

Leading the way for Colorado — which had won 10 of its last 11 games — was Arielle Roberson and Brittany Wilson with 11 points apiece.
