WACO, Texas -

The Oklahoma State Cowgirls battled it out on the hardwood Wednesday night against the nation's top team, the Baylor Bears.

A tight and hard fought first half of play quickly vanished for the Cowgirls who lost to Baylor 71-44.

The first half of play was a battle in all aspects. Oklahoma State never led, but they also never let the Bears too far out of sight.

At the half, OSU trailed 26-24, but Baylor came out of the half re energized and went on a 20-4 run in the first seven minutes to put the game out of reach.

The Lady Bears made 16 of 28 shots after halftime and Destiny Williams scored seven of her 11 points to push Baylor's lead to 46-28.

"I think they just turned it up to a different level, to be honest," Cowgirls coach Jim Littell said. "I could give you all kinds of different things and coach-talk and all that, but I think they just turned it up to a different level. They beat us off the dribble. They went about three possessions in a row coast-to-coast."

Reigning Big 12 Freshman of the Week Liz Donohoe led the Cowgirls with 19 points and eight rebounds while Toni Young scored 13.

Baylor star Brittney Griner finished with 28 points and 11 rebounds for her 34th career double-double. She also tallied eight blocked shots. Williams added 11 points and 13 rebounds while Odyssey Sims had 21 points, eight assists and six rebounds.

The Cowgirls move to 9-3, 1-2 on the year while Baylor sits undefeated at 16-0, 3-0.

The Cowgirls next game is Saturday, Jan. 14 when they host the Oklahoma Sooners at 11 a.m.
