“I'm kind of mad (because) I should have hit all of them,” said Bias, referring to two free throws she missed in the final two minutes. “But I hit two big ones that just sealed the deal for us for the end of the game. Those are just shots you have to knock down.”

Bias' perimeter defense was also largely responsible for holding Texas' leading scorer, Chassidy Fussell, to just nine points on 3-of-10 shooting (1-of-8 from 3-point distance).

OSU, along with five other Big 12 teams, next faces a quick turnaround with its final regular-season game at Iowa State on Monday night. The Cowgirls throttled the Cyclones 71-42 in Stillwater in January.
