Griner Leads Baylor Past Sooners

Posted: Updated:

Despite playing just 25 minutes due to foul trouble, Brittney Griner still managed to dominate the Sooners Monday night in Norman.

Griner scored 15 points, grabbed 15 rebounds, blocked seven shots and dished out five assists en route to No. 1 Baylor's 86-64 win over Oklahoma.

OU (19-9, 9-7) was led by Aaryn Ellenberg's 19 points while Morgan Hook added 15 points but committed nine turnovers. Sharane Campbell chipped in 14 and six boards, but the Sooners got a total of two bench points.

Destiny Williams added 16 off the Baylor (27-1, 16-0) bench while Odyssey Sims chipped in 13 points and six assists.

Griner played just eight minutes in the first half after picking up two fouls. In the 12 minutes she wasn't on the court, OU shot 50 percent from the floor, but in Griner's eight minutes of play, the Sooners managed just 11.5 percent. This allowed OU to keep it close, trailing just 37-30 at the break.

But Baylor enforced its will in the second half, outscoring the Sooners 49-34 and pulling away for the lopsided victory.

The Lady Bears shot 60 percent for the game including 3-6 from 3-point range, while dishing out 23 assists on 39 baskets. OU shot just 33 percent overall with only seven total assists.

The loss is OU's fourth in its past five games and drops the Sooners to 0-16 all-time against No. 1 teams. They'll look to get back on track Saturday against Kansas, which will be the final home game of the season.
