Survive, Win and Advance.
The Cowgirls pulled off an overtime win against the Cyclones, 79-76 in front of 2,000 fans inside Gallagher-Iba Arena. Sophmore Kaylee Jensen scored a career-high 27 points, five rebounds and blocked four shots. Along with Jensen, All-American Brittney Martin helped the Cowgirls to victory by putting 26 points on the board and having 14 rebounds.
OSU led by three with seven seconds left in regulation, but Martin fouled ISU's Seanna Johnson, sending her to the free-throw line and the ballgame was tied by the end of regulation. In overtime, there was different ties and lead changes for both teams. When there was eight seconds left, Freshman Karli Wheeler was sent to the free-throw line and extended the lead before the Cyclones could come back and fell short with the attempted three-pointer as time expired.
OSU improved to 14-4 and 4-3 in the Big 12 and is a half a game out of second place in the Big 12. The Cowgirls will travel on the road this weekend to Lawrence to take on the Jayhawks at 2 p.m.
