FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - C'eira Ricketts scored 21 points and

Arkansas (11-0) used a 10-0 run late in the second half to take

the lead for good in a game that featured nine ties and seven lead

stretch and gave Arkansas a 49-48 edge. Those were the first of

eight straight points for Harris.

Ricketts, also a junior guard, added five steals and four

assists as Arkansas beat its first ranked opponent in two years.

Oklahoma pulled within 61-55 on Morgan Hook's 3-pointer with

1:41 remaining, but got no closer. Arkansas hit nine of 13 free

throws after taking the lead.

Danielle Robinson scored 20 points for the Sooners (9-2).
