Oklahoma basketball notebook: Sooners can't contain Kansas State from 3-point range

The Wildcats put up 24 shots beyond the arc Saturday. They made 10 of them. Oklahoma couldn't contain starting guards Rodney McGruder, Will Spradling or Angel Rodriguez from 3-point range.

Steven Pledger made almost everything he touched last year in Manhattan, finishing with 30 points on 11 for 17 shooting.

He said earlier in the week that shots were “falling his way” and his teammates were “finding him in open spots.” On Saturday against Kansas State, Pledger was absent of any major production in Oklahoma's loss.

He was also running around with the Wildcats' star guard McGruder.

By halftime, Pledger had only two points compared to the 18 he had last year. He ended the game with 10 points.

“Most of the plays weren't really run for me, so we run them through and things like that,” Pledger said of his inability to make it to the basket. “(McGruder) was really on tonight, so he did a good job.”
