Cowgirl coach Jim Littell speaks to the media after OSU's 70-51 loss to Baylor.

Double digits in two different categories.

It’s an achievement that comes second nature to Natasha Mack, and she added another to her resume in Oklahoma State’s loss to Baylor for the 16th time of the season.

Although the Cowgirls struggled tremendously as they shot 27% from the field, Natasha Mack still shined.

Mack shot 9 for 19 from the field for 18 points and was one of the singular bright spots of the Cowgirl offense.

“She did a good job,” coach Jim Littell said. “Especially in the second half.”

In the second half alone, Natasha Mack had 14 points on 7-for-10 shooting from the field. She was absolutely locked in and did everything she possibly could to try to get the Cowgirls within striking distance of the Bears.

While Mack dominated offensively as she usually does, she also impacted the game on the glass as she pulled 18 rebounds, with seven of these rebounds being on offense.

“I thought she finished strong and kept playing hard as the game progressed,” Littell said.

Mack’s all-around offensive performance wasn’t enough for the Cowgirls to take down the No. 7 Baylor Bears as the Cowgirls let the Bears get out to a 16-2 lead to start the game and take control of the game just six minutes into it..
