OU's FINAL GAME VS. A&M?

Oklahoma and Texas A&M have developed a rivalry that could end Friday afternoon in the Big 12 Tournament semifinals. The two schools might meet sometime in the future, but with the Aggies moving to the SEC, it's uncertain when they will play again.

TALE OF TWO HALVES

Missouri led 33-23 at halftime. The Sooners outscored Missouri 47-26 the second half.

OU shot 26 percent the first half, 58 percent the second half.

Missouri shot 48 percent the first half, just 31 percent the second half.

“Part of it, yes, was Oklahoma's defense,” said Missouri coach Robin Pingeton. “But some of it was self-inflicted a little bit... Oklahoma upped the ante after halftime.”
