NORMAN, Okla. — Whitney Hand scored 24 points and freshman Sharane Campbell scored the final seven points as Oklahoma overcame a 10-minute stretch without a field goal to beat No. 10 Texas Tech 71-68 Wednesday night.
Jordan Barncastle missed a contested 3-pointer from the right wing with 2 seconds left to try and tie it for the Lady Raiders (14-1, 2-1 Big 12), who suffered their first loss of the season after winning their first 14 games.
The Sooners (10-4, 2-1) rushed off the bench in celebration when the buzzer sounded, celebrating a breakthrough win in a rare season that finds them outside the Top 25.
Christine Hyde scored a career-high 21 points to lead the Lady Raiders. Kierra Mallard, Tech's top scorer and rebounder, didn't score over the final 31 minutes and fouled out with 2:33 remaining as the Sooners started to rally for the win.
