It’s safe to say the No. 1 ranked Oklahoma Sooners left an impression in Waco, Texas after beating the No. 13 Baylor Bears and wrecking their 15 game home winning streak.
This all comes a week after the Sooners were announced No. 1 and defeated by No. 19 Iowa State in the same day.
Buddy Hield reached foul trouble early on and was benched after receiving his first two fouls with nine minutes remaining in the first half. However, he quickly began rooting for Jordan Woodard and the rest of his teammates as they became key first half players.
Jordan Woodard was a guy who stepped up and had 20 of the Sooners 37 points in the first half. He played aggressively and had a team high of four steals.
Both teams headed to the locker room with the Sooners leading 37-30.
Baylor came out after the half and stepped their game up as they went on an 11-4 run tying the game at 41. The Sooners countered as Buddy Hield made consecutive three pointers in a 26 second span with Isaiah Cousins dropping in another three pointer right after.
All of that was part of a 41-17 run controlled by the Sooners over 12 minutes that put OU up 82-58. The Bears continued hunting for points as they scored the last 14 points of the game.
Buddy Hield totaled 19 points. Isaiah Cousins had 13. Ryan Spangler wasn’t so shy in this game, as he contributed 11 points, six rebounds, and four assists.
Baylor’s bench had an important role in contributing to the scoreboard by accumulating 33 of the 72 points. Johnathan Motley went 6-9 in the paint totaling 12 points and King McClure had 11.
Oklahoma, 82. Baylor, 72.
