“Tonight was fun, and that’s what we were trying to do,” McFarland said. “We were trying to take a deep breath and just go back to having fun. That’s what got us here.”

Griffin’s increasing confidence and production also played a key role; entering Wednesday, she had averaged 15.4 points and shot a team-high 55 percent from the field.

Against Kansas State, she extended her career-long streak of double-figure scoring games to seven.

“I’m confident ... I’ve been a lot better with being more patient,” Griffin said.

Senior guard Brittney Chambers led K-State with 21 points and nine rebounds, and freshman Brianna Craig added 12 points and eight boards. The Wildcats (13-13, 4-10 Big 12) have now lost three straight games.

The skid snapped, Oklahoma shifts its focus to Saturday’s 2 p.m. Bedlam tilt with Oklahoma State inside Gallagher-Iba Arena.

OU won the season’s first round of Bedlam, beating the Cowgirls 80-61 Feb. 10 in Norman. OSU snapped an eight-game series losing streak last season in Stillwater.
