Duke throttles Oklahoma State on the road while Wolfpack loses at South Carolina

Posted by on Sun, Dec 12, 2010 at 5:42 PM

Duke had no trouble keeping its record perfect despite a seemingly tough road test on Sunday, rolling previously unbeaten Oklahoma State 73-45 on its own court.

But the news wasn’t as good for N.C. State on Sunday, as the Wolfpack fell to 4-6 with a 77-63 loss at South Carolina.

The No. 5 Blue Devils (10-0) put the Cowgirls away by halftime, leading 38-9 after allowing just three field goals.

Karima Christmas led the Blue Devils with 16 points, followed by Allison Vernerey who came off the bench for 12 and freshmen Chelsea Gray and Tricia Liston with 11 apiece.

Lakyn Garrison led Oklahoma State — which had a 48-game home non-conference winning streak snapped — with a career-high 20 points.

Duke freshman Richa Jackson, who is from Oklahoma, had to sit out the contest with a shoulder injury.

Duke’s next game is at home Dec. 21 against Xavier.

South Carolina 77, N.C. State 63

Amber White had 22 points to lead four players in double figures for State, which committed 25 turnovers and saw the Gamecocks shoot 51.8 percent.

La’Keisha Sutton paced USC with 18 points, followed by Marah Strickland with 17 and Ieasia Walker with 15.
Brittany Strachan had 11 points for the Wolfpack while Bonae Holston and Marissa Kastanek added 10 each.

State’s next game is at home on Thursday against Presbyterian.
