“When we can drive and kick and get him a shot, I think it gives you a lot psychologically as well, when you see that ball going through the air and it's going in.”

Forte and the Cowboys cooled from the perimeter in the second half. He missed all five 3-point tries over the final 20 minutes, while OSU was 0-for-9.


OU's Romero Osby had made 36 straight free throws before missing one late in Saturday's game.

With the miss, Osby fell one short of tying the OU record of 37 consecutive free throws made, set by Nate Carter during the 2006-07 season.

Osby finished the game 5 of 6 at the line. The Sooners went 19 of 21.


After the Bedlam loss, the Cowboys get a week off between games before returning to Gallagher-Iba Arena to face Texas Tech on Saturday.

A long time to reflect?

“I think it'll just fuel the fire, actually,” said Cowboys forward Michael Cobbins. “We'll be ready to get back on the court and prove ourselves once again. I think if anything, it'll help us to let this be in our minds when we practice. Go hard and worry about our next victim.”


OSU guard Markel Brown: “We didn't play hard enough. That was it. They got 50-50 balls. They were in a higher gear than we were.”


It was OU's ninth straight Bedlam win at home. The Cowboys haven't won in Norman since 2004. ... OU finished with more fouls (21) and fewer blocks (1) than OSU (18 and 3 respectively.). ... The Sooners are 2-0 in Big 12 play for the first time since 2009. ... Oklahoma hosts Texas Tech at 7 p.m. Wednesday.
