Oklahoma State at IU women

FINAL
Aulani Sinclair scores 23 points, and Danilsa Andujar posts a double-double with 11 points and 11 rebounds for IU, but Oklahoma State shoots 49 percent from the field, 50 percent from 3 to post the victory. Indiana falls to 2-5 on the season. COWGIRLS 83, HOOSIERS 72

SECOND HALF
2:44: Not even this streaky Hoosier squad has enough time left now, as the Cowgirls continue to execute too well offensively. COWGIRLS 76, HOOSIERS 59

5:57: Every time Indiana makes a run, Oklahoma State has the answer. Hoosiers got back within 13 briefly, now it’s 19. COWGIRLS 69, HOOSIERS 50

7:42: Just when it looked bleakest, Indiana goes on a 12-3 run to get within 12, but a couple of OSU 3s extend the margin again. COWGIRLS 63, HOOSIERS 45

11:39: All told, Oklahoma State has outscored IU 29-7 spanning the end of the first half to this point of the second. COWGIRLS 57, HOOSIERS 38

15:42: This game has gotten away from Indiana very quickly as Oklahoma State picked up where it left off, scoring the first 10 points of the second half to go up 15 before Jasmine McGhee’s jumper. COWGIRLS 46, HOOSIERS 33

HALFTIME
A mostly well-played half by Indiana was undone in the final minute and a half as Oklahoma State closed with an 8-0 run. The Cowgirls mostly scored on layups after a block and a couple of turnovers, including a pass into the backcourt that the Hoosiers just stared out rather than take the over and back violation.

Aulani Sinclair with 12 points to lead Indiana. No other player with more than four points, but eight Hoosiers scored in all. Oklahoma State was led by eight points apiece from Liz Donohoe and Lindsey Keller, also putting eight players in the scoring column. COWGIRLS 36, HOOSIERS 31

FIRST HALF
1:55: Oklahoma State went on a 6-0 run to reclaim the lead, but a Jasmine McGhee jumper and Danilsa Andujar putback have Indiana in the lead again. HOOSIERS 31, COWGIRLS 28

6:28: After Oklahoma State led 13-8, Indiana went on a 15-2 run to take an eight-point lead. Cowgirls responded to get within three and the lead is now five. Aulani Sinclair with 12 points on four 3s, her fifth straight double-figure game. HOOSIERS 27, COWGIRLS 22

11:35: Aulani Sinclair nailed her third 3 of the game moments ago, pulling IU within one after Oklahoma State had a brief five-point lead. COWGIRLS 15, HOOSIERS 14

15:18: Offenses off to a slow start, particularly Indiana shooting 2-of-10. Oklahoma State is 2-of-5 with three turnovers. Linda Rubene and Aulani Sinclair with 3s for IU. HOOSIERS 6, COWGIRLS 6

PREGAME
It’s the Big Ten/Big 12 Challenge today at Assembly Hall as Oklahoma State visits Indiana. The Cowgirls are playing their first game on the road since their head coach and an assistant coach were killed in a plane crash last month, so it will be interesting to see where their focus is at. Meanwhile, the Hoosiers are playing without Georgie Jones, who was lost for the season with an ACL injury in Thursday night’s loss at Virginia. Updates to follow here and on Twitter.

  1. John,
    Georgie Jones is out for the season with a torn ACL. Don’t know why Necole Sterling (10) didn’t play, but she’s been in and out of the lineup this year, so I’m not surprised.
