Coale said her team was flat and making poor shot selections over a several-minutes stretch in the first half.

“It's a combination of offense and defense, but we called a set and got the ball inside and scored, and sort of stopped that train, the direction it was going and went a different way,” Coale said.

Thursday, Ellenberg passed Ashley Paris to move into 16th place on Oklahoma's career scoring list; she needs 18 more points to move up another spot.

She said limiting her turnovers is always something she focuses on, and that most of her problems come when she tries to do too much.

“I think it's probably a focal point all the time; being one of the people that has the ball the most, I shouldn't be turning it over that much,” Ellenberg said.

“I think I get rushed a lot. ... I think that's where most of mine come from.”

Tre'Shonti Nottingham led the Highlanders with 14 points and eight rebounds. Natasha Hadley added 12 points and six rebounds.
