No. 18 OSU has no trouble with Tigers

January 17, 2008


— Andrea Riley scored 19 points, and Taylor Hardeman matched her season high with 16 points to help No. 18 Oklahoma State rout Missouri, 76-41, on Wednesday night.

Oklahoma State (15-1, 3-0 Big 12) has won eight straight regular-season games against Big 12 North Division opponents and 12 straight home games overall. The Cowgirls remained tied atop the conference standings and are 3-0 in league play for the first time since the 1997-98 season.

Missouri (8-8, 1-2) lost in only its second true road game of the season. The Tigers also lost their first such game, at South Dakota State on Nov. 18. The Tigers, who beat Texas Tech in their previous game, failed to record back-to-back wins over South Division foes for the first time since the 2005-06 season.

Jessra Johnson led Missouri with 13 points, while Amanda Hanneman added 10 points.

Missouri recorded its lowest point total since scoring 37 in a loss to Kansas on Feb. 7, 1999. Oklahoma State's 36-point margin of victory was its second-highest in 22 victories over the Tigers.

The Cowgirls, coming off a 19-point victory over archrival Oklahoma, entered the game enjoying their highest ranking ever. During pre-game introductions, fans at Gallagher-Iba Arena watched about 21â2 minutes of highlights from that game.
