Basketball

OSU (W) 63, TEXAS TECH 62 – Tiffany Bias went the length of the court for the game-winning basket with 1.5 seconds left on Sunday as Oklahoma State narrowly avoided an upset with a win at Texas Tech.

Bias took the inbounds pass and raced down the court, but slowed down as she neared the right wing and shook free of her defender, Amber Battle, who flew by. Bias then went uncontested to the hoop for the layup.

Bias led OSU (21-5, 10-5 Big 12) with 22 points and eight assists. Liz Donohoe scored 17 points and three 3-pointers, and LaShawn Jones added 12 points and nine rebounds.

ARKANSAS (W) 57, LSU 53 – Led by a game-high 25 points from Jessica Jackson, the University of Arkansas women's basketball team (18-9, 5-9 SEC) climbed back after trailing by as much as 15 points and upset LSU (18-9, 7-7 SEC) in Baton Rouge, La., on Sunday.

Jackson finished 47.3 percent from the field and scored 20 of her 25 points in the second half alone behind a career-high five 3-pointers. The win marked the first road win over a ranked team for the Razorbacks since beating Tennessee on Feb, 23, 2012, in Knoxville.

Softball

NSU 9, WILLIAM JEWEL 2; NSU 5, BACONE 0 – The RiverHawks closed out its three-way series on Sunday with convincing wins.

In game one against William Jewel, Sequoyah ex Saharra Henson scored twice for NSU (6-6) while Muskogee grads Madison Reed scored once and Tori Venable got a hit in a pinch-hitting role.

Against Bacone, Henson scored once and drove in a run while Venable was 1-for-3.

WILLIAM JEWEL 9, BACONE 1 – William Jewel broke a 1-1 tie with six runs in the second and coasted to the win over Bacone (1-8). Tarah Moutray was responsible for the Lady Warriors’ run, hitting a home run in the second inning which tied the score.

OSU SPLITS FINAL TWO – The Cowgirls beat Cal St.-Northridge 4-0 in their first game of the day on Sunday while falling to San Diego State 6-0 to end their play at the Mary Nutter Collegiate Classic in Palm Springs, Calif.

Hilldale graduate Danielle Riddle finished the day for Oklahoma State (10-5) going 2-for-6 in the two games with one run scored.

TULSA 8, GEORGIA ST. 2 – Tahlequah grad Erica Sampson and Jill Roye each drove in three runs, and five Hurricane players tallied two hits, to lead Tulsa to a win over Georgia State on Sunday in Atlanta.

Sampson hit a three-run home run – her fourth of the season – as part of a 2-for-2 day, and Roye hit two run-scoring singles. Senior shortstop Jill Barrett was 2-for-4 with two RBI, and senior second baseman Shelby Blanton and freshman third baseman Maggie Withee each had a pair of base hits for the Golden Hurricane (13-2), which rang up 11 hits in the game.

ARKANSAS 9, HARVARD 4 – Facing its second deficit in as many games, the Razorbacks posted another come-from-behind win on Sunday in Fort Meyers, Fla., with a victory over Harvard. The win capped an undefeated weekend at the FGCU/Four Points by Sheraton Round Robin, and pushed the Razorbacks’ winning streak to 11 games and improved the team’s record to 13-3 through the first three weekends of the season.
