Lady Bears Lose First Conference Game

By  | 

STILLWATER, Okla. -- Danielle Green scored 16 points and Maria Cordero added 15 points and 13 rebounds as Number 17 Oklahoma State beat fifth-ranked Baylor 77-to-67 tonight.
A 24-to-5 run at the end of the first half sent the Cowgirls
(18-3, 6-2 Big 12) into the break with a 39-26 lead. OSU eventually
widended its advantage to as much as 19, and Baylor never got
within single digits after halftime.
Andrea Riley missed all six of her 3-pointers but managed to
score 15 points.
The Bears (20-2, 8-1) also got a miserable start from their star
point guard, Angela Tisdale. She missed 13 of her first 15 shots
before making three in a row to lead a late 13-to-4 charge that got
the Bears within 71-61 in the final 3 minutes.
Green made five free throws in the final 2:38 to keep Baylor at
bay.
Jessica Morrow scored a season-high 24 points, one off her
career best, and Tisdale wound up with 19 points on 5-for-20
shooting.
