LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -Peyton Little scored 20 points, Maddie Manning added 12 and No. 6 seed Oklahoma blocked 13 shots to shut down 11th-seeded Purdue 61-45 for a first-round NCAA Tournament victory on Saturday.

The Sooners' double-digit block total was their highest since rejecting 10 against Baylor on Feb. 21, 2009, and they fell just two short of matching their 15 blocks against those same Lady Bears on March 7, 2007. But shot-blocking was just one highlight of an Oklahoma defensive effort that also held Purdue to just 28 percent shooting.

The Sooners (22-10) were better from the field at 43 percent but improved to 4-0 all-time against the Boilermakers (20-12). Little set the offensive tone by making 7 of 12 from the field including four 3-pointers range, while Manning made 5 of 11 with a 3.
