Sweet Sixteen Straight For Sooner Women in Home Bedlam
Oklahoma’s women’s basketball team won their 16th straight Bedlam game in Norman, beating Oklahoma State 81-74 on Saturday afternoon at the Lloyd Noble Center.
In a game that featured 11 lead changes, OU took the lead for good late in the 2nd half, and built a 12-point lead before holding on to win by seven.
Sharane Campbell led OU with a career high 28 points, making 11 of 11 free throws, while Nicole Griffin had her second double-double of the season with 14 points and 10 rebounds.
Tiffany Bias led five Cowgirls in double figure scoring with 18 points.
Oklahoma shot 59 percent from the field in the second half and held OSU to just 39 percent for the half and for the game as well.
The Sooners got a much needed win after losing at Kansas State on Wednesday night, while the Cowgirls lost for the second time in three games.
The win was OU’s 11th in the last 13 Bedlam meetings, and 16th in a row at home over the Cowgirls.
That streak is Oklahoma’s longest home winning streak against any opponent, and the longest home winning streak in Big 12 history by one team over another conference foe.
OU improved to 14-8 overall, 5-4 in the conference, while OSU fell to 18-3, 7-3 in Big 12 play.
The Sooners have a quick turn-around and will host Baylor at 6:00 Monday.
The Cowgirls are home Wednesday night to host Kansas at 7:00.
