FREEPORT, Bahamas (AP) -- Andrea Riley scored 17 points and made two late free throws as Oklahoma State beat Marist 71-69 on Friday in the Junkanoo Jam.

Riley went 5 of 27 from the field but had six assists for Oklahoma State (4-1), which missed its first eight shots and rallied from an 11-point first-half deficit.

Corielle Yarde led Marist (2-2) with 28 points and eight rebounds.

Marist led 15-4 before the Cowgirls scored the next 17 points. Oklahoma State led by as many as 14 points in the second half.

The Red Foxes tied the game twice in the final three minutes before Toni Young's offensive rebound and basket put Oklahoma State ahead 69-67 with 1:22 left. Riley then stole the basketball and hit two free throws to give the Cowgirls a four-point cushion.

Tegan Cunningham had 15 points and Young had 10 points and 16 rebounds for Oklahoma State.
