The Sooners (21-6, 10-5 Big 12) hit 33 of 67 shots (49.3%) from the field, including 15 of 36 (41.7%) from long range. The Oklahoma bench scored 50 of the team’s 92 points.

Vann hit 3 of 4 from distance and Gabby Gregory 3 of 8 to add 13 points, Nydia Lampkin added 12 points. Williams finished with 12 points and Taylor Robertson and Liz Scott each contributed 11 points.

Kayla Mokwuah finished with 22 points to lead TCU (6-18, 2-13). Tavy Diggs added 13 points.

Oklahoma returns home to play host to Kansas State Saturday. TCU plays at No. 11 Texas Saturday.
