Texas Women's Basketball took a road trip to Stillwater, OK, this weekend to take on the Cowgirls. The Longhorns had a balanced offensive attack from forwards Madison Booker, Taylor Jones, and Aalyiah Moore and would go on to win 76-66.

The Longhorns pulled away in the fourth quarter after scoring the first eight points and outscoring the Cowgirls 19-13. This was a solid road win for this Longhorns team. Here are the three takeaways from Saturday's game against Oklahoma State.

The Texas Longhorns dominated the boards, outrebounding the Cowgirls 39-24. Jones, Booker, and Moore corraled offensive and defensive rebounds, and that's why all three had great games. If the Longhorns didn't win the rebound battle, we might have seen a different outcome on the road.

Winning the rebound battle, especially on the road, is crucial in the Big 12. This was one of the many things that led to the Longhorns beating the Cowgirls.

Jones was another factor in the win against the Cowgirls this past Saturday. Her 18 points and 14 rebounds contributed to the balanced win on the road. With Junior guard Rori Harmon out for the year, Jones was expected to step up in her absence, and she did.

If the Longhorns want to win the Big 12 title this year, Jones needs to continue being a threat on the offensive and defensive end of the floor.

The last thing that led to the Longhorns beating the Cowgirls was Booker helping in all aspects of the game. She had an interesting stat line of 19 points, six rebounds, six assists, and five blocks. She did all that while playing all 40 minutes and only committing one personal foul.

She has grown in her first season in a Longhorns uniform. She learned how to play another position on the fly after Harmon was ruled out for the remainder of the season. She is going to leave a legacy by the time she graduates. The Longhorns will return to action at the Moody Center against the Oklahoma Sooners on Jan. 24.
