MBB: #13 Mountaineers put Sooners down

MBB: #13 Mountaineers put Sooners down

The Sooners (8-15, 2-9) jumped out early with a 11-3 lead in the game and it seemed as if Lon Kruger’s team might have the #13 Mountaineers (19-5, 7-4) number just like in Morgantown.

That didn’t last long as OU was unable to hit anything and Senior Jordan Woodard continued to struggle from the field going 2-11, 0-5 3 PT, and contributing 6 points.

Only one starter, Freshman Kameron McGusty, reached double digits with 11 points.

Although West Virginia only led by 2 at halftime it felt like a much larger lead.

Oklahoma got within 6 in the second half but were unable to convert on turnovers.

Neither team shot particularly well, but despite shooting a season-low 37% from the field the Mountaineers were able to smother the Sooners with their press to force 23 turnovers and hold them to 33% shooting.

WVU was able to avenge a 89-87 overtime loss at home and beat OU for the first time in Norman since joining the league.

The last win for the Sooners was at West Virginia.

Up next Oklahoma visit Iowa State. With not much to play for the Sooners can only hope the underclassman seize the opportunity to gain more experience.
