Sooners hold off ’Horns

(Continued)

AUSTIN, Texas —

OU trailed 25-21 9:41 before the half, but scored the game’s next 11 points to lead by seven. The Sooners pushed the lead to nine before settling on a 36-31 edge.

Texas pulled within 45-44 on a 3-pointer from Chassidy Fussell with 16:44 remaining, but the Sooners responded with their best few minutes of the game, going on a 23-6 run to lead 68-50 with 8:01 remaining. OU led by 14 points with 2:20 remaining and coasted in for the victory.

Texas received 14 points and 10 rebounds from Nneka Enemkpali and 12 points and nine rebounds from Imani McGee-Stafford. Empress Davenport added 12 points and seven rebounds. The Longhorns shot 39.5 percent (30 of 76) from the field.

OU had an answer for everything but the rebounds McFarland and Griffin couldn’t grab while sitting on the bench, prevailing despite Texas’ 48-25 advantage on the boards.

OU will try to keep the good times rolling at 7 p.m. Wednesday when the Sooners try to make it five straight wins at TCU.
