Women's college basketball: Oklahoma State a 71-point winner

STILLWATER, Okla. -- Reserve Kristin Hernandez scored 20 points to lead No. 20 Oklahoma State to its most lopsided victory in program history, 107-36 over Central Arkansas on Saturday.

Oklahoma State (10-1) scored the first 13 points and never was challenged by Central Arkansas (2-9), a team that suited up only eight players. The Sugar Bears are in their second season in NCAA Division I.

The Cowgirls' previous most lopsided win was 112-56 against Tulsa on Feb. 25, 1978, and recorded their highest point total since a 109-56 rout of Nicholls State on Dec. 15, 1996.

Central Arkansas, a member of the Southland Conference, had its second-worst loss in program history two days ago, 121-48 at No. 9 Oklahoma. The only time Central Arkansas lost by a wider margin than in its games this week was on March 9, 1977, when the Sugar Bears fell 132-50 to Southeastern Louisiana.

No. 11 BAYLOR 81, ST. JOHN'S 58, at New York -- Jessica Morrow scored a season-high 22 points to help the Lady Bears (9-1) beat the Red Storm (8-4). Baylor improved to 93-3 under coach Kim Mulkey when it scores 80 points or more.

INDIANA 79, No. 13 WEST VIRGINIA 66, at Bloomington, Ind. -- Jamie Braun and Amber Jackson each scored 17 points and the Hoosiers (7-5) hit nine 3-pointers, nearly matching their season high, to beat the Mountaineers (10-2).

No. 18 OHIO STATE 86, NEBRASKA 74, at Columbus, Ohio -- Marscilla Packer shot her way out of a slump with 23 points and the Buckeyes (9-2) pulled away in the second half to beat Nebraska (9-3), ending the Cornhuskers' six-game winning streak.

No. 21 VANDERBILT 92, LIPSCOMB 37, at Nashville, Tenn. -- Christina Wirth scored 16 points to lead the Commodores (9-3) past the Lady Bisons (2-10).
