NORMAN, OK -- Courtney Paris had 18 points and 15 rebounds, and No. 2 Oklahoma shut out fifth-ranked Baylor for an extended stretch of the second half to take a commanding lead in
the Big 12 with a 66-58 victory Saturday.
The Sooners (24-2, 12-0 Big 12) squandered a 15-point, first-half lead before finding themselves down by six in the second half. That's when Oklahoma came up with a huge defensive stand, holding the Bears scoreless for 11 minutes while reeling off 13 straight points to surge back into the lead.
Super Bowl-winning quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, whose sister plays for Oklahoma, stood and raised both arms over his head when Nyeshia Stevenson hit the go-ahead 3-pointer with 7:20 to play. Paris added another six straight points for Oklahoma.
Danielle Wilson had her 15th double-double with 16 points and 10 rebounds to lead Baylor (21-4, 9-3).
