K-State women pull out huge road win over Baylor

MANHATTAN, Kan. — The Kansas State women continue to show their grit and resilience after defeating 13th ranked Baylor on the road.

This is on a day where the Wildcats saw themselves move up in the AP Top 25 to number four, their highest ranking in 21 years.

And today, they showed why, winning their second straight game without their best player, Ayoka Lee.

Eliza Maupin, Gabby Gregory and Serena Sundell led the way with 16 points between the trio. Maupin had a near double-double with nine rebounds while Sundell had five.
