KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Sharane Campbell scored 22 points as Oklahoma rallied from a 12-point second-half deficit to beat Missouri 70-59 in the quarterfinals of the Big 12 women’s tournament Thursday.
In today’s semifinals, the second-seeded Sooners (20-11) will play No. 22 Texas A&M.
Kaylon Williams had a double-double with 12 points and 10 rebounds for Oklahoma, which secured its seventh consecutive 20-win season. Aaryn Ellenberg scored 12 points, and Whitney Hand added 10.
Christine Flores led the 10th-seeded Tigers (13-18) with 18 points, and Liene Priede had 15.
Missouri bolted to early leads of 8-0 and 13-2, and the Tigers were up 35-23 just after intermission. But the Sooners reeled off 15 consecutive points, the final four by Campbell, to go ahead for good 38-35 with 12:14 left. They did not trail again.
