Chambers sets KSU scoring mark

By K-State Athletics Communications

MANHATTAN-- Brittany Chambers scored a school-record 42 points, including a program-best 29 in the first half, to lead Kansas State past Texas Southern, 72-44, Thursday night in the opening round of the 2013 Women's National Invitational Tournament (WNIT) at Bramlage Coliseum.

Chambers' record bests the effort of K-State legend Kendra Wecker, who poured in 41 points against Illinois State on November 11, 2004, in the Junkanoo Jam in the Bahamas.

Chambers registered her 42 points on 15-of-25 shooting, including a 9-of-15 effort from beyond the arc. Her 15 made field goals were the most by a Wildcats since Nicole Ohlde made 17 against Wyoming on Nov. 24, 2000.

Her 42 points ties for 10th in Big 12 history, while her nine three-point makes is a new career-high and ties for fourth place in the conference. That mark also ties a WNIT record and ranks second in school history.

Sophomore guard Haley Texada chipped in 12 points to join Chambers in double figures.

Despite scoring only two points, senior Mariah White was also a major contributor as she added five assists, eight rebounds and five steals on the night.

Kansas State advances to the second round of the WNIT and will host Illinois State on Monday at 7 p.m.
