NORMAN, Okla. -- Led by 24 points from Aaryn Ellenberg, No. 11 Oklahoma defeated Cameron 102-48 in an exhibition game at the Lloyd Noble Center Saturday night.

Ellenberg was 4-for-4 from 3-point range in the first half as Oklahoma drove ahead 68-19 at halftime and cruised through the final 20 minutes.

"We were passing the ball well and I was getting a lot of open looks," Ellenberg said. "I don’t think any of them were forced or bad shots. I think that was working for me so I kept going with it.”

The Sooners shot 50 percent from the field and outrebounded the Aggies 63-39.

“I was really pleased with the first half with how we came out," OU head coach Sherri Coale said. "We were very attentive to detail, pushed the ball in transition, got good looks, shot it extremely well. It’s always pretty when you shoot it well.

"I thought we defended in a disciplined manner and that was one of the biggest things I was looking forward to the opportunity to do tonight with the new emphasis in the officiating."

Sharane Campbell added 17 points and Nicole Kornet scored 13.

OU's starting lineup featured Ellenberg, Campbell, Kornet, Nicole Griffin and freshman T'ona Edwards at point guard.

Edwards nearly had a triple double in her first collegiate game, totaling eight points, 12 assists and seven rebounds.

The Spencer, Okla., native was in the starting lineup after the Sooners lost point guards Morgan Hook (dislocated thumb) and Maddie Manning (ACL) to injuries in the team's preseason scrimmage on Oct. 25. Hook was dressed for the game but did not play.
