NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - Andrea Cossey made a game-winning 3-pointer with 9 seconds left, leading Southern Methodist to a 71-68 victory over No. 15 Oklahoma on Saturday.

The loss snapped Oklahoma's 25-game home winning streak. The Sooners' last loss was Jan. 6, 2001 against Iowa State.

With 30 seconds left and the Sooners (8-3) trailing 68-66, Dionnah Jackson was fouled as she made a turnaround jumper in the lane. But Jackson missed the free throw and the game remained tied at 68.

The Mustangs (5-3) brought the ball up court and called time out. On the inbound play, the Mustangs worked the ball around to Cossey, who caught the ball on the left wing, squared up and sank the game-winning shot.

Cossey scored all 16 of her points in the second half.

The Sooners had an opportunity to tie the game, but Laura Andrews missed a 3-pointer as time expired.

Shanta Ramdhanny led all scorers with 22 points for SMU.

Chelsi Welch had a career-high 18 points to lead Oklahoma. Jackson finished with 15.

SMU's Kim Walter, the team's second-leading scorer, left the game in the first half with a dislocated knee.
