    NORMAN, Okla. -- Nicole Griffin turned it on in the second half for Oklahoma, and it turned out the 13th-ranked Sooners needed every bit of her 15 points and nine rebounds to survive a spirited North Texas squad, defeating the Mean Green 71-68 on Thursday night.

    Griffin scored only three points in the first 20 minutes of play but set the tone after the break, going 9 of 10 from the free-throw line, eight of which she made in the second half.

    Oklahoma (8-1) cashed in from the free-throw line in the second half, hitting 27-of-35 attempts and finished 30 of 40. North Texas (2-6, 1-0 Sun Belt) was 9 of 13 from the line in the entire game.

    Three other players were in double figures for the Sooners, including Joanna McFarland, who had a double-double with 12 points and 11 rebounds. Morgan Hook had 12 and Sharane Campbell chipped in with 11.
