NORMAN, Okla. -- Aaryn Ellenberg's jumper with 1:56 left in the game lifted No. 11 Oklahoma into a lead the Sooners could finally hold onto, beating No. 25 Gonzaga 82-78 in a semifinal-round battle in the preseason WNIT on Thursday.

The Sooners face No. 5 Louisville on Sunday in the tournament's championship game.

Gonzaga nursed a slim lead throughout most of the game. Oklahoma took a brief lead at 59-58 on a 3-pointer by Ellenberg with 12:29 remaining, but Lindsay Sherbert responded with a 3-pointer for the Bulldogs.

Ellenberg, who played the full 40 minutes for the Sooners (3-0), finished with 21 points. Kaylon Williams came off the bench to add 14 points, including five clutch free throws down the stretch to help the Sooners pull away.

Haiden Palmer had 19 points and grabbed nine rebounds to lead Gonzaga (2-1). Sherbert added 14 points off the bench.
