History

Kansas first officially fielded a varsity women's basketball team during the 1968–1969 season,[2] though women's teams had been fielded as early as 1903. For thirty-one seasons (1973–2004) the women's team was coached by Marian Washington, who led the team to three Big Eight championships, eleven NCAA Tournament appearances and three AIAW Tournament appearances. The team's best post-season result was appearing in the Sweet Sixteen, which they have done five times, most recently in 2013.
