OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Chassidy Fussell scored 16 points and Nneka Enemkpali added 13 rebounds as third-seeded Texas defeated No. 6 seed Oklahoma 82-72 in the Big 12 quarterfinals on Saturday night.

Imani McGee-Stafford added 15 points and Enemkpali chipped in 10 for Texas (21-10), which will go up against second-seeded and seventh-ranked West Virginia (28-3) in the semifinals on Sunday.

Oklahoma (18-14) held a seven-point advantage at the break - despite shooting 37.9 percent from the floor - after the Sooners knocked down eight 3-pointers in the first half. The Longhorns opened up the second half on a 12-2 run, however, to take the lead for good.
