NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - Oklahoma, coming off a break for final exams, made short work of Illinois and prepared for a real test - No. 1 Connecticut.
LaNeishea Caufield scored 28 points and Stacey Dales added 21 to lead No. 3 Oklahoma to a 91-69 victory over Illinois on Sunday, extending the Sooners' winning streak to 10 games.
Oklahoma visits top-ranked Connecticut on Saturday.
"It's nice to be 10-0," coach Sherri Coale said. "Now, we can think about what we've been trying not to think about for a couple of weeks, and that's Connecticut.
"It'll be nice to have a week where our players don't have class, they don't have finals, they don't have to worry about anything but preparing for UConn."
