NORMAN, Okla. (AP) _ Courtney Paris set the Big 12 rebounding
record en route to her 78th consecutive double-double and Number
eleven Oklahoma beat 17th-ranked Georgia 65-57 today.
Paris had 18 points and 14 boards to surpass the previous Big 12
record of 1,316 set by Baylor's Sophia Young.
Amanda Thompson tied her career-high with 18 points and also had
two late blocks to help seal the win as the Sooners (13-4) allowed
much of a 10-point halftime lead to slip away before closing
Paris and her twin sister, Ashley, were able to keep Georgia's
inside tandem of Tasha Humphrey and Angel Robinson in check for
much of the game. Robinson left early in the first half after
picking up two fouls, and wasn't much of a factor in the second
Humphrey struggled to a 3-for-16 shooting performance, including
0-for-6 from 3-point range, and scored eleven points. Christy
Marshall added 16 points, one off her career best, and Megan Darrah
also scored eleven.
Ashley Paris added 14 points and Danielle Robinson scored 12 for
Georgia fell to 16-4 for the season.
