Jessica Lawson added 13 points for South Florida, including a key free throw in the final minute as the Bulls (27-10) held off a late Kansas run and won their third game in three different states in six days. South Florida had to win three straight road games to win the tourney.

Danielle McCray had 24 points for Kansas (22-14) and pushed her tournament total to 147, a WNIT record.
