SALT LAKE CITY – At the end of consecutive games, the No. 16/16 Oklahoma was beaten 124-78 by the No. 25/24 Utah in a ranked game at the Huntsman Center on Wednesday night.

The loss was Oklahoma’s first of the season (3-1) as the Utes took an early lead and never looked back, despite multiple runs by the Sooners.

Utah (4-0) led 24-13 midway through the first period before a pair of Taylor Robertson 3 points cut in the lead. The Sooners got under three points after Robertson sank a trio of free throws, but the Utes responded with a 16-6 run to push back the double-digit lead. Utah used a big third-quarter run to put the game away and OU couldn’t threaten the lead as the Utes pulled away with their best shooting performance of the season.

First-year student Reyna Scott hit double-digit points for the first time in his career with 15 points on 6-of-9 shooting. Taylor Robertson scored 11 points on 2-of-4 shooting and a perfect 5-of-5 from the free throw line and her first trey of the night lifted her solo to fifth all-time on the NCAA 3-point list. Skylar Vann added 12 points and three rebounds in the effort. Kennady Tucker had a season-high 11 points and five rebounds off the bench. The Sooners shot 41% on 26 of 64 shots to the Utes’ 55% and 13 made 3-pointers.

The Sooners will look to get back on track on Sunday when they take on UT Arlington (2-1) at the Maggie Dixon Classic at Schollmaier Arena in Fort Worth, Texas. Tipping is set at 3:30 p.m. CT on ESPN+.
