Cowgirls roll to 6-0

STILLWATER — Liz Donohoe had been averaging 18 points a game for the Oklahoma State University women’s basketball team. She nearly had that by halftime Saturday as the Cowgirls defeated Texas Southern 91-49 in Gallagher-Iba Arena.

The Cowgirls (6-0) survived a barrage of six 3-pointers from Texas Southern (1-6) during the first half before holding the Lady Tigers to 26.1 percent from the field to remain undefeated.

“That was a shocker,” Oklahoma State senior Lindsey Keller said. “I really wasn’t expecting them to shoot so well, but you have to realize that when a team comes in here, they’re wanting to win too — especially against a ranked team. They’re going to be pulling out all kinds of stops, and we have to increase our intensity and realize it doesn’t matter who you play but how you play. We need to learn how to start off the game right.”

OSU got off to a little bit of a slow start as Texas Southern went on an 11-2 run three minutes into the game before Lindsey Keller’s 4-point play ignited OSU’s offense. Keller finished with a career-high 18 points, along with eight rebounds.

“It did get us going, but I’m not happy that we were in that spot to start out with,” Oklahoma State coach Jim Littell said. “It was our own fault for being in that spot. Lindsey had a nice game today. I know she wasn’t very happy with the way she played in the last ball game, getting in foul trouble and only playing 11 minutes.”

Donohoe continued momentum in favor of the Cowgirls by knocking down all three of her 3-pointers in a span of two minutes as Oklahoma State took the lead for good with 9:12 left before halftime. Donohoe finished with 18 points after scoring 15 in the first half as the Cowgirls took a 45-30 lead into the locker room.
