“I've gotten a lot more comfortable with more pressure and pushing and a lot of those shots are starting to fall," Griffin said.

OU outmuscled the Billikens under the glass, finishing with 37 boards to Saint Louis' 25. The defense improved on its pressure underneath the rim from a week ago when OU was out-rebounded 56-34 in the loss to UCLA, something that the Sooners said they wanted to fix during Sunday's matchup.

“That was why we lost on Wednesday, and so it was a big emphasis in this game,” senior guard Whitney Hand said. “(Saint Louis) only had eight offensive rebounds, which was much better. We only gave up 33 points and won the rebounding battle, which were things we needed to care of before heading to Hawaii.”
