The 14th-ranked Sooner women used a dominant first half to knock off No. 14 Arizona State 69-57 on Thursday at the Caribbean Challenge.
Oklahoma held ASU without a field goal during a nine-minute stretch in the first 20 minutes, and led by as much as 40-18 with 2:58 remaining.
That went along with the usual double-double from Courtney Paris, who contributed 16 points and 19 rebounds. It was her 69th double-double in 72 career games.
Oklahoma coach Sherri Coale said Courtney's play opened things up for twin sister Ashley.
"I think people pay a lot of attention to Courtney and when that happens, then Ashley (Paris) draws the lesser of the two defenders," Coale said. "She took that as a challenge tonight and took it right at them. I think (Arizona State) had to redraw their game plan on the interior."
Coale wasn't as happy with her team's second-half performance.
"Every phase of our game was solid in the first half and we knocked them on their heels. They came back swinging in the second half and we didn't respond as well as I hoped," Coale said.
Oklahoma (1-2) wraps up the Caribbean Challenge when it plays Mississippi State at 1 p.m. Friday.
