NORMAN (AP) - Sharane Campbell scored 23 points and made five 3-point baskets to help Oklahoma recover from an early deficit and roll over TCU 74-53 on Wednesday night.
Nicole Griffin added 11 points and Joanna McFarland 12 rebounds for the Sooners (16-4, 6-2 Big 12), who fell behind 11-0. Aaryn Ellenberg, the team's leading scorer, had seven points before leaving with a left leg injury early in the second half.
Oklahoma came back to lead 30-27 at halftime and blew the game open with a 20-1 run over a 5:15 stretch early in the second half. Campbell hit four 3-pointers during the surge, with the last making the score 54-31 with 12:48 remaining.
"I keep saying this, but, these guys are fun to coach. No matter what happens they believe that they can win games." Oklahoma head coach Sherri Coale said. "That proved to be true tonight."
Zahna Medley had 18 points and Veja Hamilton 10 points and nine rebounds for the Horned Frogs (7-12, 0-8).
Oklahoma - which is among the top 25 in the country in scoring, 3-point field goals per game and 3-point percentage - shot 25-of-56 (44.6 percent) from the floor, including 13-of-28 (46.4 percent) from 3-point range.
The Sooners have not lost consecutive games in January since the 2004-05 season.
The Sooners will face West Virginia at noon Sunday in Morgantown, W.Va.
