WACO, Texas (AP) — Devonte Bandoo scored 19 points and Baylor ended a two-game losing streak with a 59-53 win over Oklahoma on Monday night.

Bandoo was 5-of-7 shooting from 3-point range for the Bears, who made 10 as a team from beyond the arc, and led a Baylor bench that outscored Oklahoma’s reserves 24-7 to sweep the season series. The Bears won the first meeting 77-47 on Jan. 28 in Norman, Oklahoma.

The Bears (16-8, 7-4 Big 12) took control with a 13-2 run after the game was tied at 35, but they didn’t put it away until a Freddie Gillespie put back made it a four-point game with 36 seconds remaining. Jared Butler was the only other Bear in double figures with 11.

Oklahoma was 3 for 16 from the 3-point line (19 percent) and 8 for 15 from the free throw line (53 percent). Kristian Doolittle led the Sooners (15-10, 3-9), who dropped their fifth straight, with 14 points, and Brady Manek and Christian James had 11 apiece.
