NORMAN, Okla. (AP) – Maddie Manning came off the bench to score a career-high 24 points with eight rebounds and No. 19 Oklahoma continued its dominance of in-state opponent Tulsa 85-68 on Sunday.
Peyton Little added 15 points and Nancy Mulkey 10 for the Sooners (7-2).
Junior college transfer Ebony Parker made six 3-pointers and scored 20 points, both career highs with the Golden Hurricane (3-7).
Kendrian Elliott scored consecutive baskets to give Tulsa its only lead at 7-6 before Oklahoma outscored the Golden Hurricane 19-9 over the final seven minutes of the period. An 8-0 run starting midway through the second quarter put the Sooners in front by double figures for good.
Oklahoma turned 21 turnovers, 15 on steals, into 25 points, helping to negate Tulsa’s 11-of-21 3-point shooting.
