OCU Women Blast Oklahoma Christian

Leading by ten at halftime, the Oklahoma City women's basketball team exploded in the second half, outscoring Oklahoma Christian 50-21 to win easily, 94-55 Saturday night at Abe Lemons Arena in Oklahoma City.

The second-ranked Stars (13-0 overall, 8-0 Sooner Athletic Conference) used a 20-5 run early in the first half to open a double-digit lead.

Oklahoma Christian (8-8, 2-6) scored the first seven points of the second half to cut the Stars' lead to three, but OCU responded with nine straight points and added another 9-0 run to push the lead to 68-47 with 10:57 remaining.

Oklahoma City added insult to injury when they ended the game with 12 straight points.

Starr Fairbanks led the Stars with 20 points and eight rebounds while Lauren Gober and Donica Cosby each added 13 and Desiree Jeffries scored 12.

Krista Stevens led Oklahoma Christian with 14 points. Ayanna Jackson scored 13 and Katy O'Steen added 11.

OCU out-rebounded the Eagles 45-27, forced 27 turnovers and limited Oklahoma Christian to just 34-percent shooting.

OCU will return to the court Thursday night at home against 16th-ranked Southern Nazarene. Oklahoma Christian also plays Thursday night at Oklahoma Baptist.
