Ellenberger leads OU women past KU

LAWRENCE, Kan. — Aaryn Ellenberg scored 17 of her 19 points in the second half as Oklahoma toppled Kansas 81-71 at Allen Fieldhouse Sunday.

Oklahoma (15-9, 6-5 Big 12) looked to be in dire straits early as its top two scorers struggled in the first half.

Ellenberg was held to 1-for-5 first-half shooting and Sharane Campbell sat after committing two personal fouls in the first minute of the game.

However, Oklahoma led 31-29 at halftime after holding Kansas’ leading scorer Chelsea Gardner to just two points on free throws.

The Sooners shot 56 percent in the second half and were six of 10 from 3-point range as it found production from all areas of its lineup. Morgan Hook totaled 15 points and nine assists. Nicole Griffin recorded her third double-double of the season with a 10-point, 11-rebound performance.
