NORMAN, Okla. -- Aaryn Ellenberg scored 25 points and four teammates scored in double figures as No. 17 Oklahoma defeated Western Illinois 97-80 Wednesday night.
Starters Morgan Hook added 14 points, Nicole Griffin had 13 and Sharane Campbell 12 for the Sooners (6-2) and Nicole Kornet added 10 off the bench.
Ashley Luke scored 27 points, two shy of her career best, and grabbed six rebounds and six steals, for Western Illinois (4-5). Rebecca Henricson added 18.
The Sooners broke away from a 10-10 tie with a 12-0 run fueled by Hook's seven points. The Leathernecks kept the game under double figures until Ellenberg had a burst where she made a jump, assisted Shaya Kellogg's layup and then knocked down a 3-pointer for a 43-28 lead with 4:27 before the half. The lead never got below double figures after that and when Ellenberg hit a late 3 it was 51-34 at halftime.
