Things don't get any easier; OU faces a quick turnaround before Monday's home game against No. 1 Baylor.

Oklahoma junior Aaryn Ellenberg led all scorers with 22 points Saturday; junior center Kendra Suttles led the Cowgirls (19-7 overall, 8-7 Big 12) with 19 points.

“It was all us, really,” Ellenberg said. “We could've controlled everything that happened and we didn't.”

OU coach Sherri Coale pointed to the Cowgirls' 19 offensive rebounds as a key difference in Saturday's game. In total, OSU out-rebounded Oklahoma 49-36.

“You can survive not shooting real well if you're not giving teams extra possessions,” Coale said. “We gave them 19 second shots. It's hard to win, especially on the road.”
