OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ Courtney Paris broke free from Texas' defense to score 12 of her 17 points in the second half. She lead Number 11 Oklahoma to a 67-to-58 win over the Longhorns in the Big 12 quarterfinals Wednesday night.

The All-America center also had 18 rebounds to notch her 61st career double-double. It ties the Big 12 record set by Baylor's Sophia Young last season. It was the 56th consecutive double-double for Paris.

The seventh-seeded Longhorns (18-14) missed their first 13 second-half shots. They didn't make one until Earnesia Williams hit a jumper from the left wing with 12:39 to play. That cut the lead to 46-to-33 but didn't get Texas out of its funk.
