STILLWATER, OK -- Courtney Paris broke the NCAA Division I rebounding record and set two Big 12 scoring marks in leading No. 2 Oklahoma to a 93-75 victory over rival Oklahoma State on Sunday.

Paris had 17 points and eight rebounds, with her first breaking the record of 1,815 set by Wanda Ford of Drake from 1983 to 1986.

Danielle Robinson added 18 points and Oklahoma (20-2, 8-0) extended its winning streak to 16 games.

Point guard Andrea Riley scored 25 points for Oklahoma State (14-7, 3-5) but struggled with her shot, finishing 6-for-23 from the field.

Paris finished the game with 1,823 career boards. In the second half, she broke the Big 12 career scoring record of 2,480 points, set by Baylor's Sophia Young from 2003-2006, and Young's Big 12 field goals record of 1,034. Paris now has 2,481 points and 1,037 field goals.
