In the second half, OSU connected on 46 percent of its shots and finished the game with four players in double figures in the scoring column.

The Cowgirls finished the game with a 44-16 scoring advantage in the paint and outscored the RiverHawks by a 25-2 count on second-chance opportunities.

Redshirt freshman Brittany Atkins led OSU with 12 points and was joined in double figures by seniors Tiffany Bias and Kendra Suttles, who each scored 11 points, and junior LaShawn Jones, who finished with 10 points. Bias also dished out seven assists and had seven steals.
