Sophomore forward Ryan Spangler showed little effects of a recent calf injury in Oklahoma's 91-89 win over UT Arlington on Tuesday.
Spangler had 16 points and eight rebounds in 30 minutes three days after suffering the injury in Saturday's win over Tulsa.
He missed the second half of that game with the injury and was held out of the contact portion of Monday's practice as a precautionary measure.
Sooners coach Lon Kruger said Spangler's play was unaffected by the injury, though he still had his leg wrapped.
“I don't think it was,” Kruger said. “He said it wasn't. He responded very quickly. If you'd asked me after the game on Saturday, I probably wouldn't have expected him to play tonight.”
WOODARD WINS HONOR
Sooners freshman point guard Jordan Woodard was named the Wayman Tisdale National Freshman of the Week.
Woodard earned the honor after his 24-point, eight-assist game in Saturday's 101-91 win over Tulsa. He also had three rebounds and a steal.
The award is selected by CBSSports.com's Jeff Borzello, in partnership with the U.S. Basketball Writers Association.
Woodard's 12 assists in Tuesday's game were the most for an OU player since Terrell Everett had 15 against Baylor in 2006.
The Sooners will travel to Houston to play former conference rival Texas A&M on Saturday at the Toyota Center as part of a doubleheader.
Oklahoma will take on the Aggies at 6 p.m., after the Houston-Rice game at 3:30 p.m.
The game will be televised by ESPNU and is part of the inaugural Big 12/SEC Challenge.
Going into the final game of the series, the Big 12 holds a 6-3 advantage.
The Big 12 has won three consecutive series with other conferences, having beaten the Pac-10 in 2009 and 2010.
