Senior-freshman duo Natalie Maffett and Stephanie Woods came close to a win on court two but fell 8-6 to Paulina Los and Maria Belen Luduena with the overall doubles point going to the Jayhawks as well.
The Eagles (6-8, 2-3 SoCon) followed up doubles play with three losses in singles on courts two, four and six, giving Kansas the overall win. Garrido, Woods and Maffett left their matches on court one, three and five unfinished after the match had already been determined.
