Sans Griffin, Sooners can take solace
With apologies to Jeff Capel, there was reason for the Oklahoma men’s basketball team to take solace in what happened at Texas.
Saturday night in Austin, a lost superstar meant a lost game for the Sooners. Blake Griffin suffered a concussion, and I don’t know about you, but it was tough watching the big guy on the bench. He had that spaced out look that’s scary to see.
His teammates, though, were sharp. Even without Griffin, the Sooners were within a whisker of beating a good Texas team in a rowdy environment.
The Longhorns triumphed — barely — and afterward, Capel dismissed the idea that there was anything good about the way his Sooners lost, declaring no moral victories for the program. I get what the OU coach is saying, but really, there was plenty to celebrate in the way the Sooners played.
