It looks like there’s another dynamic duo to watch out for in the Big 12 as transfer guards Jessica Washington and McKenzie Calvert had exceptional games in their season opener against Fort Hays State on October 30 in Allen Fieldhouse.
Coach Brandon Schneider said he was very happy with the high tempo game his guards brought to the court on the offensive front, but notes how there’s still room for improvement going into the rest of the season.
“I thought they both did a lot of really good things, made some really basic fundamental plays that were really good,” head coach Brandon Schneider said. “Then they made some spectacular plays and both of them did some things that they’re going to learn from, probably, most generally on the defensive end of the floor.”
Washington and Calvert both agreed they still have work to do, but feel good about their team chemistry after the Jayhawks put up 98 points in their first win.
“Coming into the first game and getting a W…we’re all really excited,” junior guard Jessica Washington said. “So just taking this and moving forward with it, the excitement is good and the team chemistry is just going to continue to get better.”
Next up, the Jayhawks will take on Washburn on Sunday, November 6 at 1 p.m. in Allen Fieldhouse.
