The shots went up during Oklahoma's 67-54 loss to Kansas, but not many of them fell through.

The Sooners, who entered Saturday leading the Big 12 in scoring offense and field goal percentage, shot just 28.6 percent in the first half and finished the game shooting 35.6 percent.

Kansas outscored Oklahoma 28-16 in the paint.

WITHEY BLOCK PARTY

Kansas center Jeff Withey is one of the nation's top blockers with 82 blocks this season.

On Saturday, he victimized four of the Sooners.

After a block, the video board showed a montage of Withey's blocks this season along with Withey in a disco outfit inviting fans to his “block party.”

SOONERS STRUGGLES AT KANSAS CONTINUE

OU hasn't won at Allen Fieldhouse since 1993. The Sooners have now lost 12 straight games at Kansas.

Oklahoma is far from the only team to struggle in The Phog, though. The win was Kansas' 33rd consecutive victory at Allen Fieldhouse, matching the fourth-longest home winning streak in school history.
