No. 7 UCLA haunted by 2 things in upset loss to unranked OSU

Oklahoma State entered Friday’s showdown with No. 7 UCLA undefeated at home. With a 20-6 advantage after the first period, Oklahoma made sure to remain flawless at home and handed UCLA only its second loss in the season.

Stillwater, OK — Oklahoma State women’s basketball fans rushed the court at Gallagher-Iba Arena Friday night celebrating an 87-72 victory over the No. 7 ranked UCLA Bruins.

The Cowgirls led 20-6 after an impressive first quarter and the Bruins couldn’t overcome its deficit. Oklahoma State head coach, Jim Littell thanked the electric crowd in the postgame press conference and said his players fed off of their energy.

“We’ve worked really hard to try to get a good crowd in here,” Littell said. “We hope they see that this group of girls plays really hard. They’re exciting to watch, and our players feed off of our crowd.

After coming off of a 35-point game and being named the Big-12 Player of the Week, Loryn Goodwin paved the way offensively once again. Goodwin led the Cowgirls with 27 points plus six rebounds, and five assists in 39 minutes of play. Oklahoma State star senior Kaylee Jensen added 19 points and 15 rebounds, yet it was the freshman, Braxton Miller, who was the true game changer with 19 points.

UCLA point guard Jordin Canada led all scorers with 28 points. She also dished out seven assists and pulled down seven rebounds as well.

Oklahoma State improves to 7-2 and will move on to face South Carolina-Upstate Dec. 19.
