The Jazz-Thunder telecast Wednesday night topped the week with a combined 11.5 local rating (percent of TV homes). Thunder ratings were hurt Sunday night by a glitch by DirecTV, which blacked out the first half of the Mavericks game and carried the second half of the game on Fox Sports Southwest with the Mavericks' feed. OSU had strong ratings for its Big 12 Tournament games, including a 8.0 for its semifinal loss to Kansas State. OU managed only a 1.2 for its quarterfinal loss to Iowa State on Thursday on ESPN2.
