NORMAN, OK -- Nyeshia Stevenson and Ashley Paris each scored 14 points as No. 2 Oklahoma extended its winning streak to 14 games and remained atop the Big 12 Conference by routing
Missouri 78-56 on Saturday.

Oklahoma (18-2, 7-0) avenged its last loss to a Big 12 foe while sending Missouri (10-10, 1-6) to its fourth straight loss. The Tigers stunned Oklahoma in overtime in the first round of last
season's conference tournament.

The Sooners next will play No. 13 Tennessee on Monday in Oklahoma City, hoping to keep Tennessee coach Pat Summitt from recording what would be her 1,000th career win with the Lady Vols.

Alyssa Hollins led Missouri with 17 points while Shakara Jones had 11.

Oklahoma center Courtney Paris had 10 points and 11 rebounds in 20 minutes of playing time to extend her NCAA-record streak of consecutive double-doubles to 112 games.
