KU women’s team has turned things around

The Star:

LAWRENCE | The Kansas women’s basketball team was well on its way to following the same tired pattern, and Bonnie Henrickson couldn’t take it anymore.

The Jayhawks had started strong in nonconference play but were suddenly 1-5 in the Big 12, with two of the losses coming to rival Kansas State. It was around that time that Henrickson, KU’s fifth-year coach, threw up her hands in disgust.

“What else can I do?” Henrickson kept asking herself.

Five weeks later, Henrickson can look back on her frustration and smile. The Jayhawks came out of nowhere and won their last four games, highlighted by Wednesday night’s 69-45 victory over No. 5 Baylor at Allen Fieldhouse. The win was KU’s first over a top-10 team in Henrickson’s tenure.
