Surprise star sparks OU in Bedlam upset

NORMAN, Okla. — Before Saturday's Bedlam matchup at Oklahoma, 11th-ranked Oklahoma State was unbeaten in its past 33 games when scoring at least 70.

That streak ended in Norman, thanks to an unexpected outburst from Oklahoma guard Sharane Campbell, who scored a career-high 28 in the Sooners' 81-74 victory.

Campbell scored on a variety of drives and jumpers, threw in a 3-pointer and made 11 of 11 free throws. The 5-10 junior more than doubled her season average for an Oklahoma team that was reeling after a road loss to Kansas State last week.

"She was fantastic in every phase of the game," Sooners coach Sherri Coale said. "Sharane was focused, uninhibited and took advantage of the matchup she had."

Oklahoma State (18-3, 7-3 Big 12) lost its 16th straight in Norman. The Cowgirls opened the second half making 3 of 19 shots, helping the Sooners erase a 37-34 halftime deficit and take the lead for good 31/2 minutes in.

NO. 1 UCONN 86, Cincy 29: Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis had 17 points for the visiting Huskies (23-0, 10-0 American), who forced 24 turnovers and allowed their fewest points this season.

NO. 9 BAYLOR 87, TEXAS 73: Odyssey Sims scored 44 despite 12-of-34 shooting, and freshman Nina Davis had 15 points and 17 rebounds for the host Bears (18-3, 8-1 Big 12).

NO. 20 W. VA. 66, TCU 62: Asya Bussie had 19 points and a career-high 15 rebounds as the visiting Mountaineers (19-3, 8-2 Big 12) overcame 35 percent shooting from the field.

NO. 22 GONZAGA 101, S.F. 66: Lindsay Sherbert scored a career-high 23, 18 in the second half when the host Bulldogs (20-3, 10-1 WCC) outscored the Dons 51-20 en route to their 11th straight win.

NO. 24 IOWA ST. 84, KANSAS ST. 65: Nikki Moody had 20 points, eight rebounds and seven assists to help the host Cyclones (16-5, 5-5 Big 12) to just their second win in seven games.

NO. 25 MTSU 67, TULSA 57: Ebony Rowe had 18 points and 15 rebounds as visiting Middle Tennessee (18-3, 7-0 C-USA) won its 17th straight.

State

TAMPA 74, BARRY 42: Ellen Nurmi had a career-high 26 points for the host Spartans (14-5, 7-2 Sunshine State), who won their sixth straight.

ECKERD 78, PB ATLANTIC 71: Rana Thomas had a career-high 21 points for the host Tritons (8-10, 1-7 SSC), who snapped a six-game slide.

ROLLINS 86, SAINT LEO 76: Teresa Manigrasso had 23 points to top 1,000 for her career for the host Lions (14-5, 5-4 SSC).
