All 13 active players scored as the Oklahoma women's basketball team defeated Bradley 104-55 Friday night inside Lloyd Noble Center to move to 3-0 on the season.

The win marked the first time since the 1991-92 season that the Sooners hit the century mark in back-to-back contests. OU topped Lamar by a score of 100-73 on Tuesday night.

At halftime, OU honored Sooner great Stacey Dales by raising her No. 21 to the rafters. Dales, the first female OU student-athlete to have her number recognized, played from 1997-02 and was a member of the 2002 NCAA runner-up squad.

"There was great joy on the court, great intensity, great passion and great unity," head coach Sherri Coale said. "All of those things trademark our program and make us special so I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome and everything that happened.”

The Sooners were led by double-digit performances from redshirt junior Kaylon Williams (16 points), redshirt sophomore Peyton Little (15 points) and freshman McKenna Treece (11 points).

Junior Nicole Kornet paced OU on the boards, grabbing a game-high seven rebounds, while Treece and senior Sharane Campbell both secured six. Treece also recorded three blocks, and sophomore Gioya Carter dished out six assists.

OU, which led the entire game and held a 54-30 advantage after the first half, was impressive from the floor throughout the game, finishing at 58.9 percent (43-for-73).

Senior Whitney Ritchie, who was a member of the OU women's tennis team for the Sooners the past four years, came off the bench to score eight straight points (including two 3-pointers) late in the second half, much to the delight of the crowd and bench.

Next up, the Sooners hit the road for the three-game Paradise Jam Tournament, played in St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands. OU faces South Florida at 7:15 p.m. CT on Nov. 27
