Rapid reaction: OU edges Kansas 72-66 for huge home win
By Anthony Slater – Aslater@opubco.com - @anthonyVslater
In shattering their own losing streak, the Sooners sent Kansas to a third straight defeat on Saturday, beating the Jayhawks 72-66 in Norman. Here’s some rapid reaction:
Cam Clark has been inconsistent but occasionally explosive off the bench for OU this season. And when he hits one of those hot patches, it can change a game. That happened midway through the second half Saturday, when Clark drilled jumpers on three consecutive possessions, turning a one-point lead into a comfortable nine-point OU cushion. It was part of a decisive 10-2 spurt that saw Clark match his per game average in less than a minute of game action.
It was over when…
…Je’Lon Hornbeak iced it at the free throw line. The cold-blooded freshman looked comfortable in the clutch, drilling four big free throws and a huge three in the final 84 seconds, sealing the must-have victory for the Sooners. “I like being at the free throw line at the end,” Hornbeak said postgame.
