OSU, which hadn't played a game in eight days, started slow for the second consecutive contest.

The Cowgirls (5-0) trailed 27-22 with about five minutes to play in the first half, but finished the period on a 16-4 run. Liz Donohoe was the Cowgirls' biggest offensive threat in the first 20 minutes, scoring 14 of her 22 points, including nine straight during an early three-minute stretch when the OSU offense was struggling.

OSU cruised in the second half, however, with the Cowgirls leading by as many as 36 points late in the contest.

Part of that dominance was due to the defense of freshman Brittney Martin. She held Texas State's Diamond Ford, who entered Wednesday averaging 23 points per game, to just five points on 1-of-14 shooting.

“We told her that she's going to have to guard a lot of good players in our league,” Littell said, “and this was the first good player that we've really seen that can score the basketball. Brittney just didn't give her an open shot all night long.”
