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.
