Oklahoma State senior forward Natasha Mack tallied 10 points and five rebounds in the second half, leading a team coalition of 16 points in the paint in the second quarter. Mack also finished the half with 18 total points and seven rebounds.

Trailing 46-35 midway through the third quarter, North Texas went on a 9-1 run from two layups by sophomore guard Jazion Jackson, a 3-pointer by junior guard Destiny Brooks and a jumper from Noble.

Oklahoma State in the fourth quarter took advantage of North Texas’ turnovers scoring nine points and shooting an overall 70.6 percent (12-of-17) in field goal percentage. The Cowgirls outscored the Mean Green 26-19 and escaped the Super Pit with a 14-point victory.
