LUBBOCK, Texas — 
Oklahoma State's women's basketball team completed its fourth sweep of a Big 12 opponent on Saturday afternoon, registering an 81-66 win at Texas Tech.

With the win, the Cowgirls improved to 15-6 and picked up their 11th conference victory, matching the program's best total since the formation of the Big 12.

Both teams got out of the gate quickly, combining to make 11 of their first 19 shot attempts. After trailing by three, the Cowgirls used a quick 8-0 run with a minute and a half remaining to move in front, 21-16. OSU led 21-18 at the break behind eight points from both senior Natasha Mack and junior Ja'Mee Asberry.

Early in the second, OSU used a 9-0 run to move the margin to 10 at 30-20. The Cowgirls outscored the Lady Raiders in the frame, 19-10, to take a 40-28 lead at the half. Mack led all scorers with 14, while Asberry added 11.

After Tech scored the first four of the third period, the Cowgirls answered with a 7-0 run to take a 47-32 lead and force a Lady Raider timeout. OSU would extend the margin to 19 before Tech broke the run. Freshman Neferatali Notoa would bury a trey from the corner with four minutes to go in the third to push the lead to 20 at 57-37.

Tech would cut the margin to 11 before Asberry made a jumper with two ticks left to give OSU a 63-50 lead heading into the final quarter.

The Lady Raiders opened with the first four points of the fourth quarter to cut the margin to nine at 63-54. But Mack would score nine points in the frame to hold Tech off.

Mack and Asberry each finished with 25, while Mack added 11 boards, four blocks and three steals. Sophomore Lauren Fields scored 13 points to go with seven assists and a pair of blocks.

OSU shot 50 percent from the floor, including a 10-of-18 effort from the floor.

The Cowgirls will be back in action on Wednesday night when they host Kansas State at 6:30 p.m.
