The knock on Oklahoma sophomore guard Cameron Clark is he's an athletic talent but he's inconsistent.
For the first time since non-conference play earlier this season, and a brief stretch last season, Clark has provided consistent production, including 14 points in a 77-64 win over Oklahoma State on Wednesday night that helped the Sooners snap a six-game losing streak.
It's the third consecutive game Clark has scored in double figures. The highest-ranked recruit on OU's roster, a consensus top-40 national player who signed with former coach Jeff Capel, Clark has averaged 14.3 points the past three games. The past three games, he's shot 57.1 percent from the field.
“That mid-range jumper is a shot he has a lot of confidence in,” said OU coach Lon Kruger. “It's nice to see him do that. We need that to continue. I still think he can attack even more and take his game up another level.”
NEAL IS HEATING UP
Sophomore forward Tyler Neal scored nine points to continue his recent turnaround.
Over the first dozen conference games, Neal averaged 1.1 points. He was 1-of-10 on 3-pointers. The Putnam City West product was in such a prolonged slump, he never played more than seven minutes.
In OU's last three games, Neal has averaged 9.0 points and is 6-of-13 beyond the arc and is playing close to 20 minutes a game.
