LAWRENCE, Kan. - Aaryn Ellenberg had 28 points, including six 3-pointers, to lead No. 14 Oklahoma to a 75-57 victory over Kansas on Sunday.
Whitney Hand matched her career high with 21 points for Oklahoma (15-3, 5-0 Big 12 Conference). She and Ellenberg combined for 37 of Oklahoma's 43 points in the first half, boosting the Sooners to 17-point lead at the break.
Carolyn Davis had 16 points and seven rebounds for the Jayhawks (14-5, 1-4), who lost their fourth Big 12 home game this season. Davis was 8 for 15 from the free-throw line and the Jayhawks were 19-for-32.
Ellenberg and Hand scored all the points in a 16-3 run midway through the first half that gave Oklahoma control. They had two 3s apiece in the surge and combined for nine of the Sooners' 10 3-pointers.
Hand was 9-of-15 from the field and made three of six 3-pointers.
Kansas narrowed the lead to 10 in the second half, but Oklahoma leading scorer Danielle Robinson scored all of her 12 points to help the Sooners pull away.
The Sooners have won 14 consecutive meetings with the Jayhawks and have not lost to Kansas since Feb. 20, 1999.
