The 3-pointers made up for 11 missed free throws, although Whitney Hand's made free throw with 6:15 left in the first half gave OU the lead for good, 19-18.

OU trailed by seven at one point in the first half.

Ellenberg finished with a game-high 21 points. McFarland added 19 points and nine rebounds. Harden had 14 points, five rebounds and three steals.
