Three OU double-doubles doom Texas A&M, 71-59


— Danielle Robinson had 19 points and 10 assists, and two other Sooners also had double-doubles as No. 3 Oklahoma led all the way in a 71-59 victory over No. 8 Texas A&M; on Sunday.

Freshman guard Whitney Hand had a career-high five three-pointers in six attempts and scored 17 points for Oklahoma (13-2, 3-0 Big 12), which won its ninth straight game overall and its second straight over a ranked conference foe, having also beaten No. 17 Kansas State on Wednesday.

The Sooners moved into a tie with Baylor atop the Big 12 standings.

Texas A&M; (14-2, 2-1) had been off to the best start in school history and won three of its last four games against Oklahoma. Takia Starks scored 19 points and Oklahoma City native Danielle Gant added 18 for the Aggies.

Oklahoma center Courtney Paris had 11 points and 14 rebounds to extend her NCAA-record streak of consecutive double-doubles to 108 games, but didn’t reach double digits in points until 1:01 remained.
