Vann and Verhulst Power Sooners to Road Win at Houston

By: OU Athletics Communications

HOUSTON – Skylar Vann scored 21 points while Payton Verhulst added 18 as the pair guided Oklahoma to a gritty 71-65 road win over Houston on Saturday night.

The win improved Oklahoma (11-6, 5-1) to 5-1 in conference play for the third consecutive season under head coach Jennie Baranczyk. The Sooners shot a conference-high 52% from the field and held Houston (11-7, 2-5 Big 12) to just 37% in the win.

The Sooners led for 37:22 on Saturday, building its advantage to 10 points midway through the fourth quarter, but the Coogs, who entered the day 9-2 at home this season, refused to go away as OU needed clutch buckets from Vann and Verhulst down the stretch to finish it off.
