Cowgirls Shock The Sooners, Win Bedlam 66-63

Posted: Updated:

Oklahoma State's women's basketball team snapped an eight-game losing streak to its in-state rival on Saturday, rallying to defeat Oklahoma 66-63.

Despite struggling offensively in the first half the Cowgirls (10-3 overall, 2-2 Big 12) trailed just 28-23 at the break. 

The Sooners extended the margin to double figures in the second half, taking a 46-35 lead with a bucket at the 12:47 mark. With OU leading by 10 and just under 11 minutes remaining, the Cowgirls used an 11-4 run to pull within three with four minutes to go.

After the Sooners extend their margin back to seven at 63-56 on a pair of free throws with 2:27 left, the Cowgirls closed the game on a 10-0 run to earn their first Bedlam Series victory since 2008.

Coweta product Jenni Bryan, who did not play in the first half, drilled a 3-pointer from the wing with 28 ticks remaining to give OSU its first lead of the game.

Freshman added a free throw and blocked OU's final 3-point attempt to end the game.

OU's Joanna McFarland led all scorers with 16 points, while Donohoe and Bias paced the Cowgirls with 14 points apiece.
