Sooners fall short of sixth straight in gritty battle

Oklahoma and Texas Tech are accustomed to low scoring battles. But on Monday night in Lubbock, the familiar foes took it to the next level.

Ultimately the Sooners five-game win streak came to an end, as the No. 14 Red Raiders outlasted OU 58-52.

“Proud of our guys defensively, just fought their tails off,” Oklahoma head coach Lon Kruger said after the game. “We just need to have a little more scoring, heck Tech’s a good defense too. So it was the first one to 50 type mentality.”
