Freshman Brittney Martin recorded the first triple-double in Oklahoma State women's basketball history to propel the Cowgirls to a 90-54 romp over UT-Arlington Saturday afternoon.

Martin scored 10 points, had 14 rebounds, nine of them on the offensive glass, and dished out 10 assists while adding five steals.

Toni Young scored 21 points to lead the Cowgirls in scoring, while Liz Donohoe chipped in 19 points for OSU.

Oklahoma State, ranked No. 15 in the country, shot 53.5 percent from the field for the game and never trailed. OSU's 9-0 start is the first since the 1995-1996 and the school's third overall.

Desherra Nwanguma scored 15 points to pace the Mavericks who dropped to 2-8 this season. Eboni Watkins was the only other UTA player in double-figures with 11.

Oklahoma State will be back in action Dec. 28 at the Surf N' Slam Classic in San Diego. The Cowgirls first opponent will be Harvard, with tip time set for 9 p.m. CT.
