Sooners beat Creighton

NORMAN — The Oklahoma women’s basketball team scored the first 10 points in three minutes never let up in an 80-52 defeat of Creighton on Sunday afternoon.

The Sooners (5-2), coming off a loss to unranked UCLA, built leads of as many as 35 points behind the shooting of Sharane Campbell, who was 10-for-14 from the field for a career-high 25 points.

Aaryn Ellenberg added 13 points and 10 rebounds, Nicole Griffin 17 points and nine boards.

Marissa Janning, with 18 points, was the only player to reach double figures for the Bluejays (4-3). Janning scored all her points on 3-point baskets — she was 6 of 13 from behind the arc, matching a career high.

Creighton lobbed 41 3-pointers, hitting just 11 and was an icy 21 percent field-goal shooting. The Bluejays were whistled for 25 fouls and Oklahoma scored 20 points at the line in 30 attempts.

Cowgirls bounce Mean Green

STILLWATER — Liz Donohoe scored 27 points for the third time in her career and grabbed 10 rebounds to lift No. 19 Oklahoma State to an easy 95-47 win over North Texas on Sunday.

Brittney Martin added 16 points and LaShawn Jones had 15 as the Cowgirls (7-0) finished up a perfect season-opening homestand.

Jones also grabbed a career-high 13 rebounds, including a staggering 10 on the offensive end, as Oklahoma State pounded North Texas 63-35 on the boards. It didn’t help that the Mean Green shot just 29 percent.

Tiffany Bias handed out 12 assists for the Cowgirls, one shy of her best, and Martin had a career-best four steals.

It was the 50th win for third-year coach Jim Littell.

The Cowgirls play at South Florida in 13 days for their first road game and then go on to the Puerto Rico Classic in San Juan.
