Oklahoma obliterates Longhorns


— Courtney Paris saved her biggest game of the season for No. 3 Oklahoma’s fiercest rival.

Paris had 23 points and a season-best 21 rebounds, and Danielle Robinson added 18 points and eight assists as No. 3 Oklahoma routed No. 14 Texas, 89-69, on Sunday to set up a showdown for first place in the Big 12.

Paris recorded her 110th consecutive double-double and the 10th of her career with at least 20 points and 20 rebounds, but it was her first 20-20 game this season.

“I don’t know that there’s been a kid in college basketball this year play a better game than Courtney did tonight. She was almost flawless,” Sooners coach Sherri Coale said. “It was unbelievable.”

Nyeshia Stevenson hit a pair of three-pointers, and Robinson had two layups during a 15-0 run that put the Sooners (16-2, 5-0 Big 12) in control in the second half.

Interesting picture they chose for this article. It's a red team apparently driving past an orange team. But the red team is from Texas, and the orange team is from Oklahoma. Hmmm
