NORMAN, Okla. (AP) – Gioya Carter continued her hot streak with 18 points on 8-of-13 shooting as Oklahoma jumped to a big early lead and cruised to a 73-54 win over Oklahoma State on Monday.

Kaylon Williams scored 16 points and Peyton Little added 13 and had seven rebounds for Oklahoma (12-5, 6-0 Big 12 Conference), which extended its winning streak to seven games, its longest since the 2012-13 season. Oklahoma entered the day tied with No. 3 Baylor atop the conference standings.

The last time the Sooners started Big 12 play with six wins was the 2008-09 season, when they won 13 straight league games, claimed the regular-season title with a 15-1 conference record and eventually advanced to the Final Four.

LaShawn Jones scored 15 points for Oklahoma State (12-5, 2-4), which lost consecutive games for the first time since Feb. 2, 2013. The Cowgirls fell out of the Top 25 earlier Monday.
