AUSTIN, Texas (AP) _ Andrea Riley scores 18 points and sparks a decisive second-half run to help lift Oklahoma State to a 64-52 victory over Texas.

Earnesia Williams led the Longhorns Wednesday night with 12 points, but Texas couldn't overcome its 22 turnovers.

The Cowgirls trailed 28-to-24 at halftime, but went on a 22-to-2 second-half run and took a 41-to-40 lead on a Riley layup with 10:10 left.

It was all downhill from there for Texas, which is on a five-game losing streak for the first time in the program's 33-year history.

The Longhorns could do little to get inside OSU's 2-3 zone, which enabled the Cowgirls to collect 16 steals.

OSU shot 15-of-25 from the field in the second half.

OSU is 18-and-9 overall and 6-and-8 in Big 12 Conference play while Texas falls to 16-and-12 and 5-and-9.
