Oklahoma's 49-point margin of victory over Baylor today marked OU's second-largest ever against a conference opponent (OU beat Colorado by 51 in the 1974-75 season in Big Eight play). It also marked the 20th-largest margin victory for OU at Lloyd Noble Center, which opened for the 1975-76 season).
OU continued to lay claim to the nation's longest current home winning streak by winning its 34th straight contest at the Lloyd Noble Center today.
The Sooners also extended their unbeaten record against the Bears to 18 straight games.
The win over Baylor gives Oklahoma its 16th win in its last 17 games versus Big 12 Conference competition. OU rattled off wins in its last five regular season contests last year, three wins in the 2002 Big 12 Tournament, a win over Missouri in last year's NCAA Tournament and has opened this season with a 7-1 mark in league play.
OU shot a season-high 58.1 percent from the field today and has shot better than 50 percent in three of its last four games.
The Sooners hit a season best 59.1 percent of their three-point shots today. It also marked the second straight game that OU has made at least half of its three-pointers for the game after hitting for 50 percent against Kansas State last Saturday.
Oklahoma was perfect from the free throw line after sinking all six of its attempts to mark the only time this season the Sooners have been flawless from the charity stripe. It was the fewest amount of attempts for the team on the season since only taking five free throw shots against Mississippi State earlier in the year.
OU's seven turnovers today were its second fewest committed this season. The Sooners committed a season low six turnovers at Oklahoma State on January 13.
OU head coach Kelvin Sampson also continues to carry an unblemished record against Baylor as his Oklahoma record now stands at 16-0 against the Bears, which also includes a perfect 7-0 mark at the Lloyd Noble Center.
Today's victory puts senior guard Hollis Price within one win of the 100 win mark for his Sooner career. OU has compiled a 99-22 (.818) record in games which Price has played. Darryl "Choo" Kennedy won 107 games in an OU uniform, most by a Sooner.
Hollis Price picked up two steals in the first half to pass former Sooner Eduardo Najera (193 from 1997-00) and move into fourth place on the school's all-time steals list. After finishing the game with four steals, the Oklahoma senior guard now has 196 career steals.
The 49-point margin of defeat for Baylor was its largest since Dec. 19, 1983, in a 102-52 loss at Clemson.
Hollis Price was 4-for-4 from the free throw line today to extend his streak of consecutive makes to 24. He made 27 in a row earlier in the season. The school record is 30 straight makes (Ryan Minor in 1995-96). Price is now 92-for-98 on the season (.939) and 32-for-33 in Big 12 play (.970).
Freshman guard De'Angelo Alexander's 15 points surpassed his previous career high of 14 against UNC Asheville on Dec. 30, 2002.
Four Sooners made three three-point field goals on the afternoon. Quannas White (3-for-4), De'Angelo Alexander (3-for-4), Blake Johnston (3-for-4) and Hollis Price (3-for-5) were a combined 12-for-17 from long range (.706).
Baylor ranked fifth nationally entering the game with its 9.3 three-point makes per game but was just 4-for-17 for 23.5 percent today.
