Historic Defensive Effort Powers Sooners Past BYU in Provo

By: OU Athletics Communications

PROVO, Utah – Skylar Vann scored 19 points, Aubrey Joens had her sixth career double-double, and Oklahoma held off BYU 75-63 in Provo on Wednesday night to notch the program’s first 2-0 conference start since 2016-17.

The Sooners (8-5, 2-0 Big 12) jumped out to an early lead and withstood numerous BYU (10-5, 0-2 Big 12) runs to secure the wire-to-wire victory and move to 3-0 in true road games this season. OU shot 39% but held BYU to just 29%, the lowest field-goal percentage for a Big 12 opponent in the Baranczyk era.

“I thought we really did a nice job of handling their runs,” head coach Jennie Baranczyk said. “They’re a very, very good shooting basketball team and they rebound the ball so well. I’m really proud of how we handled the pressure in a tough environment and we’re happy to get another good road win.”
