OU basketball notebook: Sooners offense scores season-low 47 points

FROM STAFF REPORTS Published: February 11, 2012


Point guard Sam Grooms (nine points, eight assists) has dished out 58 assists with only 11 turnovers the past 10 games, a dazzling 5.27 assists-to-turnover ratio.

For the season, Grooms leads the Big 12 in assists-to-turnover ratio (3.11) and ranks in the top 10 nationally.


The Sooners host Texas Tuesday night at Lloyd Noble Center. The Longhorns (6-6 in league play) are viewed by most analysts as a NCAA Tournament bubble team.


OU sophomore guard Cameron Clark scored six points and grabbed six rebounds... Texas Tech guard Javaris Willis, coming off back-to-back scoreless games, scored a career high 21 points... The Red Raiders average a conference worst 17.4 turnovers but had a season low seven turnovers, only one in the second half. The Sooners had 15 turnovers... Texas Tech outscored OU 28-6 in the paint, one area the Sooners were expected to have an edge... OU shot 14 percent on 3-pointers (2-of-14). One of the two long-range baskets was supplied by walk-on T.J. Franklin in the waning seconds.
