After starting the first 47 games of his career, Cameron Clark has come off the bench the past two games, which has helped him snap out of a slump. The sophomore guard has averaged 10.0 points in two games as OU's sixth man after going nearly a month without scoring in double figures.


The Sooners play Saturday afternoon at Texas A&M. Big 12 coaches picked the Aggies as co-favorites with Kansas in a preseason poll, but A&M has been a disappointment. Texas A&M (10-7 overall, 1-4 in league play) is ranked No. 173 in the country according to RealTimeRPI. The Sooners are ranked No. 68.


Romero Osby has 26 dunks. The rest of the team has 19. ... The Sooners were out-rebounded 37-34. ... Last in the conference in turnover margin, Texas Tech had 21 turnovers against OU, 15 in the first half. ... Tyler Neal, who averaged 6.1 points in nonconference play, is averaging 1.4 in league play. ... Casey Arent, a junior-college transfer, has moved ahead of Barry Honore in the big man off-the-bench rotation behind C.J. Washington, who grabbed four rebounds against Texas Tech. Arent picked up four fouls in his six minutes.
