— At Big 12 Media Days before the season, Oklahoma senior forward Cameron Clark talked at length about extending his shooting range.

Friday against Arkansas-Little Rock, Clark showed that extended range off at home, hitting four 3-pointers and scoring a game-high 22 to lead the Sooners to a 101-81 win in front of 4,975 at Lloyd Noble Center.

“I couldn't even tell you,” Clark said when asked when the last time he attempted eight 3-pointers in a game. “I think this is the first time. I'm just working on my game and trying to perfect my game, stretching out to the 3-point line.”

It was Clark's third consecutive game with 20 or more points. He's led the Sooners in scoring in each of the last four games.

“It's great to see Cam getting as great of results as he is because he works so hard,” OU coach Lon Kruger said. “In the past, I think he has kind of deferred to the older guys but it's good to see him stretch out there, let it go and be more aggressive. We have talked about it for awhile and that's one of the things we did, but it's a result of Cam putting the time in and having the confidence to do it and he's doing that.”
