Rapid reaction: OU downs Oklahoma State 77-68 in Norman
By Anthony Slater – Aslater@opubco.com - @anthonyVslater
OU beat Oklahoma State 77-68 in Bedlam round one Saturday in Norman. Here’s some rapid reaction:
Lacking offensive rhythm and energy, OSU fell into an early double-digit hole. But an effective press trap brought the Cowboys back midway through the second half, cutting the OU lead to as little as two. And it looked like we were in for a dramatic finish. But the Sooners, sparked by Amath M’Baye, quickly cut off momentum. The junior transfer had his best sequence since arriving in Norman, going on a personal 7-0 run in highlight fashion.
It was over when…
…M’Baye ended his impressive spurt with a SportsCenter top 10 throwdown off an inbound, putting the Sooners up 13 with four minutes to go. Lloyd Noble Center erupted (no, seriously) and, given the Cowboys offensive struggles, the game was essentially put away.
