M'Baye followed by giving Oklahoma its first fast-break points. Hield hit the Sooners' first three of the game. Sam Grooms scored his first points. Steven Pledger drained a couple threes, and with just under seven minutes remaining, Clark drained a lot of buckets.
Ohio had started to slowly creep back into the game, eventually cutting Oklahoma's lead to only four points.
Then Hield grabbed a steal. The ball made its way to Isaiah Cousins, who put the ball up for Clark to finish with a dunk.
On the next play, Hield grabbed the defensive rebound and passed it down low to Clark, who slammed it down for another dunk. Clark finished with eight points.
“That's what Cam does,” M'Baye said. “He gets the crowd going, the bench going.”
The players said it was the first victory where they really felt like they played as a unit. Pledger led OU in scoring with 18 points, while M'Baye and Osby each added 16.
“It makes you feel good to know that your team, everybody is coming into his own and becoming more confident,” Osby said. “I think it was a team effort all week in practice. We really shared the ball better, talked on defense better and went after rebounds together better.
“That will be huge when we get to the Big 12 because it is a team game, and when we are all playing well and working for each other, it's always a good feeling.”
