NORMAN (AP) - Aaryn Ellenberg scored 24 points and Portia Durrett had 14 points and 10 rebounds to lead No. 18 Oklahoma to a 79-57 victory over Cal State Northridge on Saturday.
Ellenberg was 5-of-9 from 3-point range for the Sooners (10-2), who made 12-of-28 from behind the arc in their last nonconference tuneup before the start of Big 12 play.
Durrett hit 6-of-7 from the field, including both of her 3-point attempts.
Sooner head coach Sherri Coale said Durrett seemed more settled on the court.
"The best part for me is that she seemed to play with a clearer mind," Coale said. "She just let herself go play basketball, which is what she's good at, obviously. I loved her getting on the floor after loose balls and trying to make plays happen."
Nicole Griffin had 11 points and Sharane Campbell 10 points, six rebounds and six assists for Oklahoma.
Janae Sharpe and Jianni Jackson scored 12 points each for the Matadors (6-5).
The Sooners used all 10 players on the active roster, including OU volleyball players Tara Dunn and Eden Williams, who made their debuts after joining the injury-riddled basketball squad last week. Four players, including preseason All-Big 12 selection Whitney Hand, have been lost to season-ending injuries.
