STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) _ Andrea Riley scored 21 points and Danielle Green added 14 points and six rebounds to help lead Oklahoma State to a 77-58 Big 12 Conference victory over Texas Wednesday night.

Riley finished 6-of-11 and hit all seven of her free throws for the Cowgirls (16-7, 4-6 Big 12), who also got 13 points from Taylor Hardeman.

Carla Cortijo paced the Longhorns (16-8, 5-5) with 16 points, five rebounds and four assists and Tiffany Jackson chipped in 14 points and 10 rebounds.

Texas was leading 14-12 at the 12:45 mark in the first half when Rashidat Sadiq hit both free throws to pull the Cowgirls even at 14-14 and spark an 11-0 run. Sadiq's jumper gave Oklahoma State a 16-14 advantage and the Cowgirls didn't stop until Brittainey Raven hit a layup for Texas at 6:45 to narrow the deficit to 23-16.

Oklahoma State led 35-26 at halftime and never trailed after intermission.

The Longhorns battled back, going on a 5-0 run early in the second half to get within three, 37-34, on Earnesia Williams' 3-pointer.

But Hardeman hit a 3-pointer afterward, and the Longhorns never got any closer than seven after that.

Texas outrebounded the Cowgirls 45-43, but were only able to score 12 points off OSU turnovers. Oklahoma State scored 26 points off 16 Texas turnovers.
