FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Taylor Robertson scored 21 points, Skylar Vann had a double-double and No. 16 Oklahoma defeated UT Arlington 89-80 in the Maggie Dixon Classic on Sunday after blowing a 19-point lead.

The Sooners (4-1) lead 40-21 after a 10-0 run in the middle of the second quarter and had a 15-point lead midway through the third quarter before the Lady Mavs (2-2) battled back.

Trailing 65-58 after three quarters, UT Arlington tied the game twice, first at 69 on a Nyah Threatt 3-pointer. Jireh Washington’s layup put the Lad Mavs on top 74-73 with four minutes to go.
