NORMAN, Okla. (AP) – Kaylon Williams had 21 points and nine rebounds and No. 18 Oklahoma beat Kansas 67-44 in a Big 12 opener on Wednesday night.

Oklahoma (10-2), coming off a 10-day layoff, won its 11th straight conference opener.

Oklahoma led by 10 at halftime and went scoreless for the first three minutes of the third quarter, but Kansas could not take advantage and trailed by 11 entering the fourth.
