However, Oklahoma also had 13 turnovers. M'Baye had the most with three. Osby, Hornbeak, freshman Isaiah Cousins and junior Cameron Clark all had two.

HORNBEAK UP, COUSINS DOWN

Against Texas A&M, the Sooners' two starting freshman guards did not make a field goal.

On Tuesday night, Hornbeak tied for a game-high 12 points. The freshman guard hit three from beyond the arc and went 4 of 9 on field goals. He also made his only free-throw attempt and grabbed one rebound. Hornbeak also played the most minutes of any Sooner with 33.

Cousins again went scoreless from the floor. He was shown the bench after 1:30 was off the game clock and played only 16 total minutes.

QUOTABLE

Kruger on Oklahoma becoming more physical: “We just have to execute things better. Set better screens. Use screens better. That doesn't mean just relative to contact, it means just execution in general. Getting your bodies on people is part of the execution at times.”
