  • Oklahoma (11-5, 2-1 Big 12) picked up its first Big 12 Conference home win of the season by beating Texas A&M (8-7, 1-3 Big 12). OU has won nine straight games against the Aggies.
  • The Sooners drew their second-highest attendance of the season with 5,229 fans.
  • The Sooners shot 80.0 at the free throw line with the starters shooting an impressive 13-13.
  • Oklahoma's bench hit 3-of-4 treys.
  • Junior guard Maria Villarroel was 9-9 in field goals and 3-3 in free throws. The 9-of-9 shooting tied the Lloyd Noble Center record of 100.0 percent, which was set by Jamie Talbert against TCU on 11/27/01. Talbert, however, attempted just five shots. Villarroel's game does not go into the school records book as 10 attempts are required for that list.
  • The Sooners held the Aggies to only 17 points in the second half. TAMU made just 7-of-38 shots in the second half, including only 1-of-10 outside the arc.
  • Sophomore guard Lauren Shoush had a career high of five steals and made her first three-pointer of the season.
  • Oklahoma had a season-high 17 steals. The previous best was 16 vs. Sam Houston State.
  • An assist was credited on 23 of OU's 28 field goals.
