The Sooners led by as many as seven in the second half but Notre Dame used an 8-0 run to take a 57-56 lead with 5:26 remaining in regulation.

In the extra frame, Barlow's jumper tied the game at 72-72 and Notre Dame (25-8) went 7-of-8 from the free throw line to pull past Oklahoma in the final minute of play.

Paris extended her double-double streak to 92 consecutive games with 24 points and 16 rebounds to lead the Sooners (22-9).
