MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — Ana Llanusa scored 28 points, shooting 11 for 13, Madi Williams scored 24, and No. 20 Oklahoma pulled away from West Virginia for a 98-77 win on Saturday in a Big 12 opener for both teams.

Taylor Robertson scored 18 for the Sooners shooting 6 for 10 from behind the arc. It marked the 41st game of her career that the redshirt senior has made at least five 3s in a game.

The Sooners shot 11 for 19 in the first quarter including 6 for 8 from beyond the 3-point line. Robertson made all three of her 3s in the quarter. Oklahoma (11-1) built an 18-7 lead and finished up 30-19 after one.

West Virginia countered and seized control of the second and outscored the Sooners 28-14 as JJ Quinerly scored 15 in the quarter making 5 of 7 baskets. Madisen Smith made three foul shots with 1:45 before halftime and the Mountaineers took their first lead at 44-42. West Virginia closed the half up 47-44.

Quinerly finished with a career-high 28 points shooting 10 for 15 and Madisen Smith scored 23 for the Mountaineers (9-3).
