Sooners Dominant Against Samford

Posted: Updated:
NORMAN, Oklahoma -

Oklahoma had to play its final tune-up without its top player and received contributions across the board Sunday afternoon at the Lloyd Noble Center.

Morgan Hook and Derica Wyatt combined for 23 points and five 3-pointers as the Sooners defeated Samford 66-35 in the first meeting between the two teams.

Wyatt made her first career start in place of OU's leading scorer Aaryn Ellenberg, who sustained a concussion in practice Friday and did not dress for the game.

Wyatt was 3-for-3 on 3-pointers and led Oklahoma with 9 points in the first half.

Samford (3-9) took an 8-4 lead but Oklahoma then rattled off 25 of the next 30 points, including eight by Hook, who capped the run with her second 3-pointer of the game. The Bulldogs, who made just 12 of 48 (25 percent) field goals and 6 of 33 (18.2 percent) 3-pointers, would never again get closer than 14.

Oklahoma (9-4), which took a 36-20 advantage into the break, out-rebounded Samford 46-21 and shot 50 percent from the field and 47.6 percent from long range. The Sooners recorded 16 assists on 23 field goals.

Oklahoma led 36-20 at halftime.

Samford's Shelby Campbell totaled 12 points and six rebounds.

Oklahoma begins conference play Jan. 2 at Texas Tech.
