Women: Sooners run table on Big 12
By wire services
Published March 2, 2006
LUBBOCK, Texas - Courtney Paris got a triple double and set an NCAA freshman rebounding record as No. 9 Oklahoma held off Texas Tech 60-59 on Wednesday night, denying Raider coach Marsha Sharp a final regular-season home win.
Paris, a candidate for national player of the year, had 18 points, 13 rebounds and 10 blocks for the Sooners (26-4, 16-0), who became the first team to go undefeated in the Big 12 since the league began in 1996. She got her record 444th rebound of the season late in the game.
Last week, Sharp announced she was resigning at the end of the season, her 24th at Tech. Her record is 571-188.
After the game, an emotional Sharp spoke to fans, telling them she has been honored to be the "caretaker" of the program.
"It has been the most incredible ride you can imagine," she said to loud cheers from a near-sellout crowd in United Spirit Arena, known to many in Lubbock as "The House that Marsha Built." A freeway under construction will bear her name and will be the only freeway in Texas named after a woman.
NO. 10 BAYLOR 72, TEXAS 64: Sophia Young had 28 points and 17 rebounds to lead the visiting Bears.
Young scored nine straight late in the second half to help put the game away and send Baylor into the Big 12 tournament on a five-game winning streak. Jessica Morrow added 12 points for the Bears (22-5, 12-4), including a key 3-pointer to knock out a Longhorns rally.
NO. 25 TEXAS A&M 65, OKLAHOMA ST. 47: Morenike Atunrase scored 22 and freshman Danielle Gant came off the bench for a career-high 14 rebounds to lead the visiting Aggies (22-7, 11-5). Atunrase made her first five 3-pointers to help hand the Cowgirls their 23rd straight Big 12 loss. They are the second team to go winless in conference play. Kansas went 0-16 in the 2001-02 season.
Oklahoma State cut into Texas A&M's 15-point halftime lead by holding it to one field goal in the first six minutes of the second half. Christian Hood's layup brought the Cowgirls within 40-30, but Atunrase scored the next five.
