NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - Maria Villarroel scored 21 points to lead No. 23 Oklahoma past Texas A&M 77-39 Saturday night.

The Sooners (11-5, 2-1 Big 12) held Texas A&M to 25 percent shooting to beat the Aggies for the ninth straight time.

Toccara Williams scored 12 points and was the only player in double figures for Texas A&M (8-7, 1-3). The Aggies shot 18 percent in the second half and were outscored 46-17.

Oklahoma outrebounded A&M 46-32, outscored the Aggies 16-3 from the foul line and had 23 assists, compared with six for A&M.

Both teams were sloppy, however: Oklahoma had 24 turnovers, two more than A&M.

Villarroel had six assists and seven rebounds. Theresa Schuknecht added 14 points and Dionnah Jackson, coming off a 2-for-16 performance in an 80-71 loss to No. 7 Texas Tech on Wednesday night, had 13 points and seven assists.
