A day after his 23rd birthday and the end of OU's finals week, Amath M'Baye had little impact in the Sooners' 64-54 win over Texas A&M.

M'Baye played only 14 minutes, finishing with one steal and one blocked shot.

M'Baye looked more aggressive in the second half defensively but did not grab a single rebound. Besides that, the junior transfer from Wyoming missed three shots from the paint — all in the second half.

Freshman Isaiah Cousins was the only other OU starter not to score.

“Amath and Isaiah, they're going to be fine and bounce back,” senior Romero Osby said.

PLEDGER FOR THREE

Senior Steven Pledger ended the game with 10 points, including two 3-pointers. Pledger now has 198 career 3-pointers, tying him for fourth place on OU's career list with Tony Crocker.

Pledger, a senior forward, played only 21 minutes Saturday after drawing his second foul with 14:50 still remaining in the first half.
