The Bears were 23 of 35 from the line while the Sooners managed just seven free-throw attempts all game (five makes).

Royce O’Neale’s two missed free throws with 12 seconds left gave the Sooners yet another chance, with Jordan Woodard hitting a 3-pointer to cut the margin to three, but then Brady Heslip made both after getting fouled to put the game away.

Oklahoma outscored the Bears 26-22 in the paint but didn’t attack the rim much early. Baylor outscored OU 18-14 in the paint in the first half and 12-4 off turnovers.


The Sooners hit 12 3-pointers and lost for the first time all season when making at least 10 from behind the arc. OU is 11-1 in such games. ... Baylor’s 47 points were the second-most surrendered by the Sooners in a first half all season. … OU turned the ball over just nine times, but Baylor converted them into 16 points. … After not scoring 18 or more points in 12 consecutive games, Cam Clark has scored at least 18 in four of the last five. … Baylor coach Scott Drew tied the all-time record at Baylor with his 201st victory at the school.
