STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) -- LaToya Bond scored 17 points and
C'stelle N'Garsanet added 14 points and 12 rebounds as Missouri
beat Oklahoma State 69-65 on Wednesday night.
Missouri's EeTisha Riddle hit a tiebreaking baseline jumper with
21 seconds left, and Oklahoma State's Taylor Hardeman missed a
3-pointer that would have given the Cowgirls the lead with 5
seconds to play.
Bond then hit two free throws to seal the game for Missouri
(18-6, 8-4 Big 12). Carlynn Savant also scored 14 for the Tigers,
and Tiffany Brooks had 11.
Shaunte' Smith led Oklahoma State (6-17, 0-12) with 19 points
and 12 rebounds. Whitney Pegram added 16 points and Catherria
Turner scored 10.
Stephanie White, Lin Dunn and Carolyn Peck know what it takes to succeed in women's basketball. Their return to the college level should boost the SEC and is good for the game overall.
