Williams Leads Sooners Past Cincinnati, OU Stays Unbeaten in Big 12

By: OU Athletics Communications

NORMAN – A late rush from the Oklahoma offense, powered by Sahara Williams’ career day, led Oklahoma past Cincinnati, 77-64, at Lloyd Noble Center on Saturday as OU remained unbeaten in conference play.

The win extended Oklahoma’s (9-5, 3-0 Big 12) winning streak to three games as the Sooners improved to 3-0 in the league for the first time since 2016-17. Williams scored a career-high 18 points, including 12 in the fourth quarter, in Saturday’s win over Cincinnati (8-6, 0-3).

“I’m proud of how we stuck together,” head coach Jennie Baranczyk said. “It was really fun to watch our group bring the fun to basketball. Before things went well, we just had fun playing and that’s when stuff started to go well. We just want to make sure that we continue to have fun playing basketball and that we play hard, and the scoreboard will say whatever it’s going to say.”
