Brittney Martin scored 19 points, surpassing 1,500 for her career, and added 14 rebounds to lead Oklahoma State to a dominating 73-42 victory over No. 14 Oklahoma on Saturday.

Kaylee Jensen added 17 points -- 15 in the second half -- for Oklahoma State (13-4, 3-3 Big 12), which lost its previous contest, 47-44, at Kansas State after missing 14 consecutive shots over the final 5:53.

Mandy Manning led Oklahoma (12-4, 3-2) with 13 points and six rebounds. The Sooners, who entered the contest averaging 16.6 turnovers per game, shot just 25.5 percent from the floor (12 for 47) and committed a season-high 26 turnovers -- one game after turning the ball over 25 times in a 68-58 win over Kansas State.

Leading 32-17 at halftime, Oklahoma State continued to control the game early in the third quarter, using an 11-2 run to push its lead to 43-19 after Karli Wheeler's fast break layup with 3:35 elapsed.

Jensen's two free throws with 49 seconds left in the third pushed the Cowgirl lead to 28 at 52-24, and OSU carried a commanding 53-26 advantage into the fourth. Oklahoma scored the first six points of the final quarter to pull to within 21 points, but never got any closer the rest of the way.

Oklahoma took an early 3-2 lead on Kaylon Williams' layup 1:05 into the contest, but Oklahoma State took over after that. The Cowgirls forced the Sooners into six turnovers, limited them to just 1-of-11 shooting, and outscored them 14-3, the rest of the first to take a 16-6 lead.

Oklahoma State continued to build on the advantage in the second, using a 13-4 run to go up 32-15 after Martin's layup with 2:31 left.


Oklahoma: Senior forward Kaylon Williams, who leads OU in scoring at 14.6 points, scored just five points and had three turnovers in just 16 minutes of action. It was the first game this season Williams failed to reach double figures. Dating back to last season, she'd scored at least 10 in 17 straight contests.

Oklahoma State: Besides becoming the 11th Cowgirl to surpass the 1,500-point plateau, senior guard Brittney Martin moved up several other OSU career lists. Her 14 rebounds give her 955, moving her past Shaunte Smith into fourth place on the Cowgirl career list, while her two blocked shots edged her past Liz Donohoe into 10th with 74.
