Oklahoma basketball: San Diego State sends Sooners packing from NCAA Tournament

BY STEPHANIE KUZYDYM Published: March 22, 2013

Just like in its past two games, Oklahoma went on a scoring drought in the second half.

San Diego State scored eight straight points before Osby could slow them with a 3-pointer. Thirty seconds later, San Diego answered back with a three. The Sooners missed seven straight shots until M'Baye scored a basket.

Last week against Iowa State, no Sooner made a basket with about eight minutes remaining. In the last nine-plus minutes against San Diego, Oklahoma scored just seven points.

The Sooners shot 37 percent in the second half and missed 16 of 21 3-point attempts.

Osby finished with 22 points. No other Sooner hit double digits in scoring.

Jamaal Franklin led San Diego State (23-10) with 21 points.

Pledger, who OU coach Lon Kruger said the Sooners needed making shots, was 1-of-8 and finished with three points. Shots that he had been making all season were no longer falling.

“It wasn't the way I wanted to go out,” Pledger said, his eyes red with tears.
