Martin, a freshman who joined OSU as the top signee in school history, filled out the box score with six rebounds, three assists, six steals and a block in her collegiate debut.

“She's one of those players that looks like she's a good playground player,” Littell said. “She knows when to make a pass when somebody's open. She knows when she's got a crease that she can drive. Basketball coaches say, ‘She's got a real good feel for the game,' and she does.”

OSU led by as many as 33 and made its decisive push with a 16-3 run to end the first half that gave the Cowgirls a 48-28 advantage. Yet Littell said he wants to see his team's patience improve on the offensive end.

“We shot a lot of balls off of one pass,” Littell said. “That's not conducive to finding out who on their team is that person that can't guard, and it's not conducive to offensive rebounding.”

Cal Poly's Molly Schlemer finished 21 points and 12 rebounds in the loss.

The Cowgirls next travel to Missouri State on Tuesday night before playing their next six games at Gallager-Iba Arena.
