Bedlam Blowout: Cowgirls rock Sooners, 83-62

STILLWATER — It seemed like a familiar sight for the Oklahoma State women’s basketball team. Build a big lead only to watch it dwindle away.

Only this time, Oklahoma State junior guard Tiffany Bias wouldn’t it happen.

Bias scored 17 points — 14 in the second half — as the Cowgirls beat Oklahoma 83-62 in Bedlam Saturday at Gallagher-Iba Arena.

“Coach (Jim Littell) really told me to push the ball,” Bias said. “Look for gaps to see if anyone is open or get to the hole if you need to. Especially on those fast breaks when they’re still trying to get back, it’s always good to attack them.”

In a game filled with historic runs Oklahoma State (19-7, 8-7 in Big 12) got the one that mattered most, opening the second half with a 15-3 run and scoring points in 13 out of 14 possessions at one point in the second half.

“In the game of basketball you’re always going to have runs,” Bias said. “We had our run in the beginning and they came back with a run. You just have to keep your composure and fight through it. The second half, we calmed down. We weren’t frustrated. We knew that with our team we could figure this out. We did and came out and fought hard.”

“We didn’t come out with the fight we had in the first half,” Oklahoma guard Morgan Hook said. “We just kind of came out there and thought it was going to fall into our hands. We didn’t start the game with that same fire that we had in the middle of the first half to start the second half.”

Oklahoma State jumped out to a 23-4 lead with 12 minutes left in the first half only to watch Oklahoma (19-8 9-6 in Big 12) go on a 25-3 run over the next eight minutes to take its first lead of the game before Liz Donohoe’s 3-point play helped give the Cowgirls a 34-33 lead at halftime.
