Baylor’s Queen Egbo and Oklahoma’s Liz Scott battle for possession during the first half of a Big 12 game Wednesday night in Norman, Okla.

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — Skylar Vann scored 22 points and No. 23 Oklahoma ended an 11-game losing streak against No. 14 Baylor with a come-from-behind 83-77 victory Wednesday night.

Baylor entered the fourth quarter with a 65-60 lead and the Sooners didn’t take a lead until Vann hit a 3-pointer for a 78-75 advantage with 2:56 to play. That was part of a 9-0 run that led to a game-ending 12-2 surge.

After Queen Egbo gave Baylor a 75-71 lead with 4:30 to play, the Bears missed their last four shots and had four turnovers.

Madi Williams scored 18 points for Oklahoma (14-2, 3-1 Big 12 conference), which is off to its best start since the 2006-07 team went 17-1.

The Sooners’ Taylor Robertson became the Big 12 conference 3-point shooting leader in the win.

Robertson scored 15 points on 5-for-5 shooting from 3-point range to give her 393 from beyond the arc in her career, surpassing Laurie Koehn’s conference record. In 99 career games, Robertson has made at least five 3s 36 times.

NaLyssa Smith matched her career high with 30 points for the Bears (10-4, 0-2) on 12-of-20 shooting from the floor but had her string of 11 straight double-doubles end with eight rebounds.

Egbo had 16 points and 10 rebounds, and Oklahoma native Ja’Mee Asberry scored eight to surpass 1,000 points for her career.

Jordan Lewis had seven points, 11 rebounds and five assists for Baylor, which had a 39-28 rebounding advantage but turned over the ball four more times than the Sooners with 18.

Baylor led 21-16 after the first quarter, and the teams played even over the next two quarters. Oklahoma outscored the Bears 23-12 in the fourth.

The Sooners, who ended a skid of 18-straight losses to top 15 teams, is home against TCU on Saturday.

Baylor remains on the road at Kansas on Sunday.
