Oklahoma basketball: Amath M'Baye's offensive woes continue
Amath M'Baye was there to comfort Buddy Hield after the freshman missed the game-tying free throw for Oklahoma on Tuesday night.

He was even there to swat a ball in the second half.
But M'Baye's offensive production didn't help the Sooners for the second straight game, a 56-55 loss to Stephen F. Austin.
M'Baye went 1 of 2 from the floor and didn't shoot a 3-pointer. He did grab four offensive rebounds.
The stat line is better than the one had against Texas A&M in Oklahoma's last game. On Saturday, M'Baye finished without a point, going 0-for-3 in field goals along with tallying one steal and one block.
“We know he's got the skill and the ability to perform at a much higher level,” Oklahoma coach Lon Kruger said. “Everyone wanted it, and he expected it to happen more quickly, and that's a bit frustrating ... but the only thing to do is to keep investing time, and Amath will do that.”
Oklahoma had six total assists against Stephen F. Austin. Three of those came from freshman guard Je'lon Hornbeak. Then forward Romero Osby, guard Steven Pledger and guard Buddy Hield each had one.
