NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — Vionise Pierre-Louis scored a career-high 16 points, pulled down seven rebounds and No. 17 Oklahoma held off Kansas State 68-58 on Sunday.

Pierre-Louis made all eight of her free throws, Kaylon Williams was 8 of 10 from the line and scored 14 points for the Sooners (12-3, 3-1 Big 12), who sank 28 of 34 compared to 13 of 22 for Kansas State. Derica Wyatt added 11 points and Gabbi Ortiz 10. Williams has scored in double figures in every game this season.

Breanna Lewis had 20 points and Megan Deines 10 for the Wildcats (10-5, 0-4).

Oklahoma led 22-8 after one quarter but the Wildcats were within six, 41-35, after three. A 3-pointer by Kaylee Page with 46 seconds left cut their deficit to four but that would be the Wildcats' final points as Oklahoma hit six straight free throws.

Oklahoma has won 16 of the last 17 meetings with Kansas State.
