Oklahoma basketball: No. 22 Sooners fall to No. 24 Iowa State
The Cyclones committed nine first-half turnovers, but only gave the ball away five times in the second half. OU, meanwhile, committed nine turnovers in each half.
“We did a great job of making better decisions,” Fennelly said of the improvement after halftime. “We couldn’t handle the ball any better, and that was a big part of our ability to get some points.”
Junior center Nicole Griffin, Ellenberg and Campbell each scored 14 points Thursday to lead OU; McFarland grabbed a team-high 11 rebounds, but scored only two points.
Iowa State junior Hallie Christofferson led all scorers with 27 points, and also grabbed 10 rebounds to help the Cyclones (18-5 overall, 9-4 Big 12) complete a regular-season sweep of Oklahoma (18-6, 8-4 Big 12) and take sole possession of second place in the conference standings
