COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Megan Daines scored 11 of her 14 points in the second half including the go-ahead foul shot as No. 9 seed Kansas State rallied past eighth-seeded George Washington 56-51 in a women's NCAA Tournament first-round game Friday.

The Wildcats (19-12) used a 14-5 burst in the third quarter including her foul shot for Kansas State's first lead of the game, 39-38, with 37 seconds left in the period.

George Washington (26-7) kept things tight, trailing 52-51 on Jonquel Jones foul shot with 20.1 seconds left.

But the Wildcats made four of six free throws down the stretch to open the NCAA Tournament with a victory for the eighth time in their last nine appearances.

Jones had 20 points, 13 rebound and six blocks for the Colonials.
