UT Arlington ran into a buzz saw Sunday, losing 74-35 to No. 21 Oklahoma State.

The Cowgirls, with four starters returning from an NCAA Tournament team, roared to a 32-7 lead and led 41-23 at halftime. It was OSU’s 26th consecutive home win in nonconference.

Seniors Briana Walker and Laila Suleiman lead UTA with 11 points each. Desherra Nwanguma had eight rebounds and six points for the Mavericks (0-2), who shot only 22 percent (12 of 54) from the field and were 1 of 13 on 3-point attempts.

“Even though the stats don’t show it, we did some good things today,” said first-year UTA coach Krista Gerlich, trying to rebuild a program that has gone 7-23 and 7-21 the last two seasons. “We forced them to reset their offense a couple of times and we did some good things offensively too.”

UTA picked up five fouls in the first five minutes of the second half, allowing OSU to extend its lead. Nwanguma knocked down a jump shot to give UTA its first second-half points six minutes into the half.

“We asked our team to take it a step up defensively after our last game, and I thought we did that,” Oklahoma State coach Jim Littell said. “We played a lot harder” than in an opening win over Lamar.

UTA freshman Allea Harris scored her first collegiate points with a layup against the Cowgirls.

The Mavericks play their home opener at 7:30 p.m. Thursday against Incarnate Word at College Park Center.
