NORMAN — Two weeks ago, the Oklahoma Sooners fell short of a historic upset of the Kansas Jayhawks in Allen Fieldhouse.

Saturday morning in the Lloyd Noble Center, they finished the job, toppling the No. 9 ranked Jayhawks 75-68.

“Proud of our guys,” head coach Lon Kruger said after the game. “Big time battle. Both teams I thought fought like crazy and buckets were kind of hard to come by.

“That game, you know, obviously could have gone either way and the guys hung in there. Got a little bit of a margin there late and made free throws. late and did a good job to close it out.”

Early on, sophomore guard De’Vion Harmon was OU’s offensive focal point, scoring the first eight points for the Sooners.
