“Just glad to get away with a win,” said OU coach Sherri Coale.

The Sooners (11-6, 2-2 Big 12) were coming off back-to-back overtime losses, first to Iowa State at home last weekend and then at Texas on Wednesday.

Sophomore Sharane Campbell added 14 points and 10 rebounds for the Sooners, and freshman guard Leticia Romero led Kansas State with 19 points and 11 rebounds.
