Nov 18, 2001
STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) - LaNeishea Caufield scored 24 points, and Stacey Dales had 19 as No. 4 Oklahoma beat Tulsa 75-52 in the Bertha Teague Classic on Sunday night.
Freshman Dionnah Jackson added nine points and eight assists for Oklahoma (3-0), which had a tough time early against Tulsa's 6-foot-4 Alyssa Shriver. But Oklahoma quickened the tempo as the first half progressed, and built a cushion.
Shriver finished with 21 points and seven blocked shots for Tulsa (0-2).
The score was 28-24 before Kate Scott hit a 3-pointer to begin a 7-2 run in the final four minutes before halftime. Then Dales had three baskets as the Sooners scored the first eight points of the second half to take control.
Tulsa got no closer than 16 after Oklahoma built its 55-32 lead.
Caufield scored all but two of her points in the second half, including Oklahoma's final 11. Dales scored nine during a 20-6 run at the start of the second half that pushed Oklahoma's lead from 35-26 at halftime to 55-32.
Oklahoma had 14 turnovers in the first half, but did a better job protecting
the ball after that and wound up with 21. Tulsa committed 27 turnovers and shot
just 35 percent.
