Cowboys Fall To Jayhawks, Sooners
1/17/15 OSU Cowboys @ Oklahoma Sooners
Buddy Hield couldn't miss. Literally.
Oklahoma's junior guard scored 27 points on 10-for-10 shooting to help the 18th-ranked Sooners defeat No. 24 Oklahoma State 82-65 on Saturday night.
Hield also made 4 of 4 3-pointers. Jordan Woodard scored 13 points, Spangler had 11 points and 11 rebounds and TaShawn Thomas added 10 points for the Sooners (12-5, 3-2 Big 12), who snapped a two-game skid and got their third win over a ranked team in conference play.
Oklahoma State's Le'Bryan Nash and Phil Forte, the top two scorers in the Big 12, were held in check. Nash scored 15 points, but he made just 6 of 15 shots. Forte scored 11 points on 3-for-11 shooting. Leyton Hammonds scored 15 points and Anthony Hickey added 14 for the Cowboys, who lost their second straight.
Oklahoma State missed its first 15 3-pointers before finally making one with just over 11 minutes remaining. The Cowboys (12-5, 2-3) shot 37 percent overall.
Hield scored 18 points on 6-for-6 shooting in the first half to give the Sooners a 41-20 lead at the break. Ford said his team's effort in the first half was poor.
The game was never close in the second half, and the Sooners finished the game in style. Hield threw down a powerful putback jam, then Spangler dunked on Oklahoma State's Michael Cobbins, the No. 2 shot blocker in the Big 12. Spangler made the free throw after Cobbins' foul to put Oklahoma up 78-59, prompting Oklahoma's fans to chant "Little Brother."
The Cowboys were looking to rebound after their loss to Kansas on Tuesday; instead, they left with their second-worst loss of the season.
