    Cosby scores 11 straight in Arkansas' win over Tulsa

    TULSA, Okla. (AP) -- Donica Cosby scored 11 consecutive points in a 1:39 span to thwart a Tulsa comeback and lead No. 25 Arkansas to a 78-67 victory Saturday night.

    Tulsa (4-6) had cut a 13-point second-half deficit to one at 61-60 when Cosby hit consecutive 3-pointers. After Tulsa's Julian Robbins made one of two free throws to make it 67-61, Cosby drove for a basket, then scored again on the baseline, was fouled and converted the free throw to increase the advantage to 72-61 with 2:22 left.

    Cosby scored 21 points for Arkansas (11-1). Charity Ford made three of five 3-pointers and scored 14 points, as did post player Lauren Ervin.

    Jillian Robbins had 17 points, 15 rebounds, three steals and a block for the Golden Hurricane. Jamie Dreiling scored 14 points and Valerie Siemens added 12 points and nine rebounds.

    Arkansas' relentless pressure bothered Tulsa throughout the first half. Tulsa had 12 turnovers, several of which led to easy baskets for the Lady Razorbacks.
