At the start of the second half, OSU didn't show any sign of struggle as Senior Brittney Martin scored 12 points in the third quarter to help take the lead 64-45. Martin (24-8) and Jensen (23-8) combined for 47 points and 16 rebounds, along with Kaylee's three blocks, to help the Cowgirls pull a way for the win.
