What 2 Watch 4
• Oklahoma State's women's basketball team will conclude its two-game swing through the state of Kansas on Saturday with an 8 p.m. tilt at Kansas.
• The Cowgirls will be looking for their second Big 12 road win of the season.
• OSU has won 23 consecutive games in which four players have scored in double figures. OSU has achieved the feat in 12 of its 14 wins this season.
Toni Young has scored in double figures in 25-straight games for the Cowgirls.
Tiffany Bias is 14 assists away from becoming just the third Cowgirl to reach 500 for her career.
Toni Young is four rebounds away from becoming the fourth Cowgirl to record 900 career boards.
Liz Donohoe has made 40-straight free throws, which is tied for the school record set by Andrea Riley in 2006.
• Donohoe and Riley's strings are tied for 14th all time in NCAA history. Colorado's Kate Fagan holds the Big 12 record at 44 (2002-03), while the OSU men's record is 43 set by Joe Smith in 1967.
 • The Cowgirls have assisted on 318 of their 525 field goals (61 percent) thus far.
 • OSU moved up 15 spots to No. 34 in this week's set of NCAA RPI rankings.

Know The Foe
•  The Jayhawks snapped a three-game skid with their Jan. 23 win against Texas in Lawrence.
•  Carolyn Davis currently ranks seventh in the league in scoring at 15.2 points per game and is second in field-goal percentage (58.5%).
•  Angel Goodrich is third in the Big 12 in assists (6.5 apg) and first in steals (3.0 spg).
•  Natalie Knight leads the league in assist-to-turnover ratio at 4.3.

OSU vs. Kansas -- The Series
• The Cowgirls will be looking for their fourth consecutive win inside Allen Fieldhouse.
•  Kansas leads the overall series by a 31-26 count, but OSU has won 10 of the last 16 meetings after its 76-59 win in Stillwater on Jan. 8.
•  The Cowgirls last regular-season sweep of the Jayhawks came in 1991.

Kansas State Leftovers
• The loss was OSU's fourth in a row against K-State and third in a row in Manhattan.
Toni Young scored 22 points to reach the 1,400-point plateau for her career.
• The contest was OSU's first overtime game under head coach Jim Littell.
Liz Donohoe finished 2-for-2 from the free-throw line and has now made 40 in a row from the stripe. (Don't tell her. It might jinx the no-hitter!)
