NORMAN, OKLA. (AP) - Freshman guard Whitney Hand scored a career-high 20 points and Danielle Robinson added 17 points and a career-best eight assists as No. 4 Oklahoma beat Marist 83-57 Wednesday night in a tuneup before its showdown against top-ranked Connecticut.

Courtney Paris extended her streak of double-doubles to 97 straight with 12 points and 11 rebounds in a season-low 22 minutes as the Sooners (4-1) opened a 15-point lead in the first 6 minutes and were never challenged.

Rachelle Fitz scored 17 points and Erica Allenspach added 10 for the Red Foxes (3-1), the top vote-getter outside the Top 25 this week.

Next up for Oklahoma is a trip to Connecticut on Sunday to face the No. 1 Huskies.
