Kansas State (14-15, 5-12 Big 12) and its fans received a going away present from seniors Brittany Chambers and Mariah White, as the Wildcats ended a four-game losing streak with a 68-62 win over Texas Tech on Saturday afternoon at Bramlage Coliseum. K-State ended the regular season with an 8-6 record at home, which is the third straight season and the 19th of the last 20 seasons that the Wildcats have tallied a winning record in Bramlage.
K-State was led by Chambers with 31 points on 12-of-19 shooting including 5-of-7 from beyond the arc. For the week, Chambers registered 67 points on 26-of-44 (.591) shooting including 11-of-17 from three-point range. She also tallied 17 rebounds and four assists. The effort was the 33rd career game of 20 or more points for Chambers and her 15th this season. This was her fifth career 30-point game and the 44th in school history. She is tied for the school record with five games of 30 or more points in a career and joins Shawnda DeCamp (1993-94) and Ashley Sweat (2006-10). She is the first player in the program’s 45-year history to register consecutive 30-point games.
For the season, Chambers is the only player in the Big 12 to score 500 or more points (585), grab 200 or more rebounds (218) and dish out 80 or more assists (88). She is the seventh player to reach this milestone in league history and the 10th time this has been achieved. She joins former Wildcats’ Nicole Ohlde and Kendra Wecker as the only players in school history to achieve these numbers in a single season. The 585 points are a career-high for Chambers and rank as the fourth-highest point total by a K-State senior in school history. Her 218 rebounds and 88 assists are also career-highs for a season.
