BRIDGEPORT, Conn. -- Aaryn Ellenberg scored 23 points and No. 20 Oklahoma beat Fairfield 79-51 on Wednesday night.

The start of the game was delayed 45 minutes as Oklahoma was stuck in traffic coming up from New York City. It took the Sooners three hours to get to the game from their Times Square hotel 60 miles away.

The long bus ride slowed them at the start as Fairfield hung around for the first half. The game was tied at 15 before Ellenberg and Oklahoma got going. The senior guard hit two 3-pointers during a 15-4 run that gave the Sooners a 30-19 lead with 3:25 left in the half. They led 35-25 at the break.

Fairfield was able to get within 37-30 early in the second half before Oklahoma (8-3) put the game away with an 11-2 run. Ellenberg started the spurt with lay-in off an inbounds pass and Nicole Griffin capped it with a layup.

Alexys Vazquez led the Stags (5-4) with 17 points.
