Sooners cruise in exhibition

(Continued)

NORMAN —

Two, the Sooners made a point of working their transition game. That’s how they scored 67 points in the second half, it was the way Morgan Hook finished with nine assists and it was in overdrive as long as Manning was leading the break, which tended to be whenever she grabbed a backcourt pass or a defensive rebound.

“Maddie has a really high motor,” Coale said. “It’s important to get her playing at the right speed. I love that push.”

Manning matched her five assists with five turnovers and scored nine points to go with a co-team high eight rebounds. Hook, who finished with 18 points, joined her in getting the offense moving.

“We are trying to push the ball early in transition,” Hook said.

Everybody had their moments.

Hand led OU with four steals and grabbed seven rebounds in just 19 minutes of court time. Durrett finished with 16 points and six rebounds, while Kornet added 14 and matched Manning’s eight boards. Aaryn Ellenberg was her unbashful self, finishing with 15 points on 5 of 17 shooting.

As a team, OU hit 58.3 percent (42 of 72 ) from the floor, while limiting OC to 24.7 percent (18 of 73) floor accuracy.

Katy O’Steen led the Eagles with 12 points.

The Sooners hit the century mark with two free throws from Sharane Campbell with 7:08 remaining.

They weren’t nearly done.
