Cousins had 13 points and a career-high 10 rebounds. Cousins hadn't had more than seven rebounds in any game in his career.

“I thought Isaiah was attacking all night,” Sooners coach Lon Kruger said. “I thought he was aggressive and made a lot of good plays. We needed that especially when you go on the road.”

Cousins added four assists.
