“When Tech came in here and snapped that winning streak we had, guys were like, Did that really happen?” King said. “The reality is anybody can beat anybody.
“How are you gonna bounce back? How are you gonna respond to this adversity? Guys have to keep the fighter's mentality.”
Oklahoma is 2-1 after last week's loss to Kansas State, and is now on a second bye in three weeks. The Sooners return to action Oct. 6 at Texas Tech, where OU hasn't won since 2003.
MEN'S BASKETBALL PICKS UP COMMITMENT
Keshaun Hamilton verbally committed to Oklahoma for the 2013-2014 season.
The junior college power forward is currently in his first year as part of the Labette Community College basketball team in Parsons, Kan. Last year, he played at Santa Fe College in Gainesville, Fla. where he averaged 7 points and 7 rebounds in 14 games before his season was cut short with a knee injury. He had surgery last January.
Hamilton also played his high school ball in Florida at Palatka High School, about 40 miles east of Gainesville.
Hamilton joins juco commit Dominique Elliot for the Sooners' 2013-2014 roster. Elliot committed on Sept. 13.
The commitment by Hamilton marks second-year coach Lon Kruger's third commitment for that season, the first being four-star point guard Jordan Woodard from Edmond Memorial.
