Riley mauls Bears

Oklahoma State guard Andrea Riley celebrates with her teammates after leading the Cowgirls with 43 points in a 78-65 win over No. 5 Baylor on Saturday.

This was easily the most fun I’ve had shooting a women’s basketball game. That’s nothing against women’s basketball; I’ve been plenty bored shooting men’s games.

It’s odd because I love basketball. But enjoying a game that you’re shooting and enjoying a game as a fan are completely different. In this game, I could enjoy it from both standpoints. And that’s what made it great.

Andrea completely dominated, scoring 43 point (6 threes). I know the girls were pumped for the game against the then No. 5 team in the nation and the heavy favorite to win the Big 12.

Even cooler was the fact that Baylor’s starting center, Brittney Griner, is 6’8″ and in her previous game had tied Candace Parker’s record for dunks in a game (2).
