LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - Carolyn Davis scored 20 points on 8-of-11 shooting, helping No. 20 Kansas rally in the second half to remain unbeaten with a 65-53 victory over Minnesota on Sunday.
Chelsea Gardner, coming off a career-high 26-point performance against Grambling State, added 14 points off the bench for the Jayhawks (7-0). Davis and Gardner combined for 15 of the Jayhawks' 26 field goals.
