Oklahoma senior forward Cameron Clark scored 16 points on 7 of 8 shooting in Saturday's 88-72 win over Baylor, a scoring total equal to that of his last two games combined.

“The guys want him to be the cornerstone of guys making shots and consistency, and he hasn't done that as well in conference play as he did earlier,” said OU coach Lon Kruger. “He continued to work at it, and the guys are pulling like crazy for him. As happy as Cam was tonight, I'm sure all of his teammates were equally — or more so — happy for him.”

BAYLOR PLAYERS DEFLATED

Baylor sophomore center Isaiah Austin and junior forward Royce O'Neale arrived for their postgame news conference and said very little, appearing completely deflated after dropping their eighth game in their last 10.

"I'm going to be completely honest; I don't want to be here right now so all I'm going to say is that my team, we still have faith in God and his plan for us so that's what we're going to work on,” Austin said. “We're going to keep trusting in him and it'll end up turning out the way it's supposed to.”
