November 16, 2008


No. 4 Oklahoma 88, UC Riverside 57

Norman, Okla. - All-American center Courtney Paris now has only one player left to pass to become the highest-scoring player in OU history.

Paris scored 16 points to move into second place on Oklahoma's career scoring list, and the fourth-ranked Sooners opened their season with a victory against California-Riverside in the Women's Preseason National Invitational Tournament.

Paris now trails only Phylesha Whaley on the Sooners' career scoring chart and needs 31 points to move into first. Paris also had her 93rd straight double-double on Saturday.

No. 13 Texas 66, Dayton 40

Austin, Texas - Erika Arriaran and Earnesia Williams each scored 10 points, and Texas defeated Dayton in the first round of the World Vision Classic.

Arriaran came out strong off the bench, hitting four of her first five shots. Yvonne Anderson added eight points in her first game as a Longhorn.

After a slow start, UT hit seven straight shots to open a 22-12 lead. Texas shot 42 percent from the field and held Dayton to 28 percent.
