Baggett's most important three of her 14 points of the game came off a brilliant set after a timeout with a little over a minute remaining and the younger sister of former Cowgirl's stars Ashlyn and Caitlyn drained the long one to bring them within one, 60-59

She was noticeably upset after the game but that young lady is simply a beast but several were  pretty scary out there on the floor. Okoye sealed the deal with two free throws and NeTanya Jones just missed a double double with 10/9 for the Cowgirls who face Stephen F Austin at 2:30 in Katy at the Merrell Center
