Sooners unable to overcome slow start to upset No. 2 Bears

Sooners unable to overcome slow start to upset No. 2 Bears

The Oklahoma Sooners dug themselves a hole they couldn’t get out of against one of the nation’s best.

Hitting the road against the No. 2 Baylor Bears, the Sooners fell to a 16-2 deficit early and failed to recover, ultimately falling 76-61.

“Got off to a horrible start, fighting uphill from that point on,” Sooners coach Lon Kruger said. “(Baylor’s) really good. A lot of weapons, but we got to play better that we did to have a chance to compete with that high of a level.”

After stumbling out of the gates, the Sooners never quit.
