Bedlam Basketball: No. 7 Oklahoma Hosts Oklahoma State

No. 8 Texas 84, No. 20 Oklahoma State 79: LaShann Higgs scored a career-high 30 points for Texas (12-1, 3-0 Big 12). Curry offered glowing praise of the freshman and noted he understood why the comparisons exist, but did stop short of endorsing those comparisons wholly. Sophomore guard Lindy Waters leads the Cowboys with 34.7 percent from 3-point range.

"I knew how good he was, but I didn't even realize he was this good", Calipari said, according to SECCountry.com.

"We've been pretty dialed-in on watching film", Boynton said. Young was a rebound shy of a triple-double. I watched how he played, how the Warriors moved without the ball and how Steph got everyone involved and still created for himself. Young can get it done against the best teams in the country, there's no doubt about that.

The Cowboys knocked off the Sooners in Norman with a late 3-pointer by Phil Forte and two big defensive plays in the final seconds. The Seminoles (12-2, 1-1 ACC) led most of the game but nearly squandered it as they didn't make a field goal in the last 2:57 and missed their last four free throws. "Lon Kruger, who I have unbelievable respect for, basically said 'We're gonna play through you, it's all going through you, you're gonna shoot when you want.' And he did not lie".

Sandwiched between games against top-10 opponents and two days after the football team played in the Rose Bowl, Oklahoma fans could be forgiven for overlooking the first game between the two in-state rivals tonight at Lloyd Noble Center. "They appreciate it so much that they get a little extra pumped".

Young scored 10 points and dished seven assists in the half.

The Sooners came out with a quick offensive attack, building a seven-point lead during the first three minutes.

Shine's night ended with 13:29 remaining in the game. Most of the fouls occurred in the paint with OU getting down low effectively and often.

Oklahoma never trailed after that, leading 50-42 at halftime.

Boynton has preached defense all season, though the Cowboys didn't have an answer for the Sooners' pick-and-roll offense.

That has allowed Young to find open teammates when he's not shooting.

Boynton said several Cowboys will likely take turns guarding Young. Kameron McGusty led the Sooners with 12 points at the break. We can go big with him at the point guard.
