Individually, Littell praised Lindsey Keller, who held SFA's leading scorer, Porsha Roberts, to zero points on 0-of-3 shooting. It's the second time in eight days that a Cowgirl defender has shut down the opponent's top offensive threat, as Brittney Martin held Texas State's Diamond Ford to just five points on 1-of-14 shooting on Nov. 28.

Toni Young (game-high 20 points, 12 rebounds) and Liz Donohoe (15 points, 14 rebounds) both tallied double-doubles for the Cowgirls, while Keller (16 points) and reserve Morgan Toben (10 points) joined them in double figures.

After SFA's pressure defense frustrated OSU in the opening minutes, Keller said the Cowgirls slowed down in their half-court offensive sets, which also contributed to the big scoring run.

OSU played the majority of the contest without Martin, as the freshman guard had a tooth knocked out when she hit the floor on a defensive possession early in the contest.
