STILLWATER, Okla. — Toni Young scored 25 points, Tiffany Bias added 17 points and 11 assists and Oklahoma State ended a season marked by tragedy by beating James Madison 75-68 on Saturday to win the program's first WNIT championship.
Liz Donohoe notched her fifth straight double-double with 14 points and 11 rebounds, and the Cowgirls (22-12) and made it through the tournament without trailing in the second half despite a late charge by the Dukes.
Oklahoma State lost head coach Kurt Budke and assistant Miranda Serna in a Nov. 17 plane crash that also claimed the lives of pilot Olin Branstetter and his wife, Paula.
The season ended with a triumph, though.
Tarik Hislop scored all 16 of her points in the second half to lead James Madison (29-8), but it wasn't enough to overcome a 17-point deficit.
