Oklahoma State women’s basketball holds off late Kansas State rally

STILLWATER — Oklahoma State junior Taylen Collins had barely played in the second half and was on the bench with four fouls.

But when Kansas State cut the Cowgirls’ 16-point lead to five midway through the fourth quarter, OSU coach Jacie Hoyt sent their versatile forward back into the game.

On OSU’s next possession, Collins grabbed an offensive rebound and was fouled, hitting two free throws to give the Cowgirls enough cushion to hold an 82-74 win over K-State on Wednesday night at the Gallagher-Iba Arena .

Collins failed after playing just over five minutes in the Cowgirls’ loss in the Cowgirls’ mayhem last Saturday, but she didn’t hesitate when Hoyt floored her just over four minutes from time on Wednesday night.

“It’s always a concern for a coach,” Hoyt said. “That’s the million dollar question, right? Do you play them or don’t you play them? They can either look really stupid or really smart depending on what’s happening. But we must also try to know things.
