Williams, No. 23 Sooner women, roll past TCU 100-71
NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — Madi Williams scored 21 points on 9-of-11 shooting, grabbed 11 rebounds and No. 23 Oklahoma rolled to a 100-71 win over TCU on Saturday.
The Sooners (15-2, 4-1 Big 12 Conference) made 11 of 25 3-pointers and shot 54% overall for their best start in league play in six years.
The performance was even more impressive with Taylor Robertson, who became the league’s all-time 3-point shooter in the last game, going just 2 of 6 behind the arc and standout freshman guard Kelbie Washington missing the game for health and safety protocols. Robertson, who is shooting 50% behind the arc, has 396 3s in her career.
Navaeh Tot stepped into the starting lineup and scored 16 points, as did Liz Scott, a career-high for both. Skylar Vann added 20, just two short of the career-high she had in Wednesday’s win over No. 14 Baylor. Tot was 7-of-8 shooting with six assists, matching Robertson.
Tavy Diggs scored 16 points and Lauren Heard 15 for the Horned Frogs (5-8, 1-3).
The Sooners shot 56% (18 of 32) in the first half, steadily building a 49-33 lead. The Horned Frogs shot just 38% (13 of 34). Scott and Vann had 11 points each and Williams 10 on 5-for-5 shooting with eight rebounds.
Oklahoma, which plays West Virginia on Wednesday, had point totals of 24, 25, 26 and 25 in the four quarters and made 8, 10, 9 and 10 field goals.
