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.

Rachel Banham had 19 points and was 8 of 16 from the floor for the Golden Gophers (6-3), including a 3-pointer with 10:59 to play that pulled Minnesota within 42-41. But Kansas responded with a 9-0 run and was never seriously threatened again.

Banham scored 12 of her points in a back-and-forth first half that saw Minnesota lead by seven early, but ended in a 30-30 tie.

Kansas won despite committing 17 turnovers, going 3 of 14 from 3-point range and missing 15 of its 25 free-throw attempts.
