COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Aaryn Ellenberg scored 27 points from the perimeter and Joanna McFarland handled things inside with 20 points and 16 rebounds to lead Oklahoma past UCLA 85-72 on Monday night in the second round of the NCAA tournament - earning a trip back to the Sooners' home state for the regional.

Sixth-seeded Oklahoma (24-10) will face No. 2 seed Tennessee (26-7) - a 68-52 winner over Creighton - at Oklahoma City in a regional semifinal Sunday.

Sharane Campbell added 19 points and Nicole Griffin had 10 for the Sooners, who never trailed after a 15-3 first-half spurt.

Atonye Nyingifa had 18 points, Markel Walker 14, Jasmine Dixon 13 and Alyssia Brewer and Thea Lemberger 10 apiece for third-seeded UCLA (26-8), which fell to 11-12 in NCAA tournament play.
