Oklahoma’s 23-2 overall record is its best in program history over the first 25 games of a season, better than the 23-3 records set by OU’s national runner-up team in 2002.
OU’s 19-game winning streak, the nation’s third longest, is the longest in the program’s history, beating an 18-game streak set during the 2006 season.
It was announced Monday that Oklahoma’s home games against Baylor, Saturday, Feb. 21, and Oklahoma State, Saturday, Feb. 28, have sold out. Only restricted admission tickets remain for those games for $8 and will go on sale when doors open on game day, 1 ½ hours before tip-off. General admission tickets remain for OU’s home finale and senior night versus Texas Tech, Wednesday, March 4. To purchase tickets, call the OU Athletics Ticket Office at 1-800-456-GoOU (4668) or visit online at SoonerSports.com.
Texas Tech scored 13 points off second chances in the first half, while OU scored none.
Courtney Paris recorded her 119th double-double in 125 career games. Paris also scored in double figures for the 123rd time in her career, seven games shy of the NCAA record in that category.
Courtney Paris has recorded at least one block in 37 consecutive games.
Ashley Paris’ double-double was her 26th career and 15th this season. The Paris twins have both had double-doubles in 26 times.
The final 8.3 seconds of the first period saw sophomore Danielle Robinson and freshman Jasmine Hartman on the court together for the first time. Hartman, a reserve point guard, had subbed in earlier for Robinson, who subbed the final seconds for Whitney Hand after she was credited with her third foul in the half.
Oklahoma’s 13 first-half turnovers matched its season-high for an opening period (Nov. 13 vs. Arizona State and Jan. 18 vs. Texas A&M).
