ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Whitney Hand put back her own miss with 18.6 seconds left to help No. 13 Oklahoma beat New Mexico 58-56 on Saturday.

Aaryn Ellenberg scored 14 points and had four steals for the Sooners (2-0), who scored the final three points of the game, overcoming a 56-55 deficit in the last minute.

Caroline Durbin, who scored a game-high 16, put the Lobos (0-3) up with a running floater from the lane with 1:35 left.

But Ellenberg hit one of two from the line and Hand then got loose in the paint. Her first shot hit the front iron, but the rebound came right back to her and she made the follow.

New Mexico had led by 42-32 early in the second half, but Oklahoma used its defense to get back in the game by forcing 23 turnovers, 14 of which came on Sooners' steals.
