Owasso alum and sophomore starting guard Mya Bhinhar scored a career-high 19 points, including 8-for-8 from the free throw line, and helped Missouri State roar back for a 96-90 win over Oklahoma in Norman on Thursday night.

Bhinhar knocked down all six of her free throw attempts in the final 27.1 seconds and enabled MSU, which trailed 46-26 midway through the second quarter, to hold on for the win.

With the win, the Bears advanced to the Preseason WNIT Championship game against No. 7 Oregon State. MSU led the Beavers at halftime before losing, 80-69. Bhinhar had four rebounds and four assists for the Bears.
