NORMAN — Jim Littell could easily pinpoint when the first Bedlam showdown of the season got away from Oklahoma State.

The three-minute mark of the first half.

Oklahoma didn't go on any extended run to create an insurmountable deficit for the Cowgirls.

But that was when OU took the lead — and kept it for good — in what eventually turned into an 80-61 runaway victory for the Sooners at Lloyd Noble Center.

“We played pretty well for 17 minutes,” Littell said.
