Sooners Cruise Past Kansas State

Posted: Updated:

Oklahoma's Aaryn Ellenberg scored 23 points and Sharane Campbell added a double-double as the Sooners ran away from Kansas State in the second half for a 60-51 victory Saturday night.

Oklahoma (11-6, 2-2 Big 12) rebounded from two consecutive overtime losses and kept Kansas State (6-9, 0-4) winless in Big 12 Conference play.

It was Oklahoma's 14th straight win over Kansas State. The Sooners last loss to the Wildcats came almost 10 years ago on Jan. 31, 2004.

The Sooners never trailed and led comfortably early as the Wildcats made just two of their first field goal attempts. But OU also struggled on offense, shooting just 32 percent in the first half and held a 23-18 advantage at halftime.

Ellenberg, who scored a career-high 37 points and crossed 2,000 in her career in OU's loss Wednesday, accounted for 13 of Oklahoma's first 15 second-half points.

Campbell then scored eight consecutive Oklahoma points to give the Sooners a 17-point lead with 9 1/2 minutes to play.

Oklahoma improved to 50 percent shooting in the second half.

Oklahoma's Nicole Griffin scored 14, setting career highs with 10-for-13 free-throw shooting, and Kaylon Williams totaled six points.

Leticia Romero had 19 points and 11 rebounds for Kansas State.

The Wildcats made just six of 29 field goal attempts in the first half and finished the game shooting 30 percent, including a 20 percent 3-point field goal percentage on 30 attempts.
