A Text Size

STILLWATER, Okla. — Liz Donohoe scored 27 points for the third time in her career and grabbed 10 rebounds to lift No. 19 Oklahoma State to an easy 95-47 win over North Texas on Sunday.

Brittney Martin added 16 points and LaShawn Jones had 15 as the Cowgirls (7-0) finished up a perfect season-opening homestand.

Jones also grabbed a career-high 13 rebounds, including a staggering 10 on the offensive end, as Oklahoma State pounded North Texas 63-35 on the boards. It didn’t help that the Mean Green shot just 29 percent.

The Mean Green (3-4) led by four early until starting post players Alexis Hyder and Acheil Tac went to the UNT bench with two fouls apiece. Oklahoma State outrebounded UNT 17-5 on the offensive glass in the first half.

The Mean Green climbed to within 26-22 before the Cowgirls closed out the first half on a 20-4 run.

UNT freshman guard Candice Adams, matched up against one of the top floor generals in college basketball in OSU senior Tiffany Bias, tied a career high with nine points and tacked on two assists and a steal while playing turnover-free ball at point guard.

Bias handed out 12 assists, one shy of her best, and Martin had a career-best four steals.

It was the 50th win for third-year coach Jim Littell.

North Texas will travel to Arlington on Wednesday for a 7 p.m. matchup with UTA.
