M'Baye played only 14 minutes, finishing with one steal and one blocked shot.

M'Baye looked more aggressive in the second half defensively but did not grab a single rebound. Besides that, the junior transfer from Wyoming missed three shots from the paint — all in the second half.

Senior Steven Pledger ended the game with 10 points, including two 3-pointers. Pledger now has 198 career 3-pointers, tying him for fourth place on OU's career list with Tony Crocker.

Pledger, a senior forward, played only 21 minutes Saturday after drawing his second foul with 14:50 still remaining in the first half.
