His 10 points also helped him move into 28th place on Oklahoma's all-time scoring list, passing Terry Stotts and Kevin Bookout. Pledger now has 1,113 points.

THE TEXAS A&M TURNERS

Texas A&M starters Ray Turner and Elston Turner gave Oklahoma the most trouble. They combined for 29 of Texas A&M's 54 points and 11 of its 35 rebounds.

Elston Turner also shot 4 of 6 from the arc.

The Turners, who aren't related, also provided a lot of the physicality in the Aggies' lineup.

“Texas A&M is known for being real physical,” Osby said. “They have big guys get real low, especially Ray Turner. He kind of sets the tone for the team.”
