Feb. 15, 2014

• Oklahoma outscored Oklahoma State 15-7 the final 3:04 to win 77-74 on the road Saturday afternoon (OU scored on seven of its last eight possessions). The victory snapped OU's four-game losing streak in Stillwater. Oklahoma improved to 19-7 overall and 8-5 in Big 12 play while OSU fell to 16-9 and 4-8.

• The Sooners swept the regular season Bedlam series for the fourth time in the last nine seasons. OSU's last series sweep came in 2004.

• OU improved to 13-6 in the last 19 Bedlam games and is now 21-18 vs. the Cowboys since the formation of the Big 12 (131-95 all-time).

• One game after going 1-for-13 from the field (1-for-10 from 3-point range) and scoring a season-low three points, sophomore guard Buddy Hield scored a team-high 22 points on 8-for-18 shooting (5-for-13 from behind the arc). Hield has made at least three 3-pointers in in 10 of 13 conference games and has scored in double figures in 24 of 26 games this year.

• Hield hit two 3-pointers in a 42-second span to put the Sooners up for good (from down 68-65 to up 71-68 with 1:06 remaining).

• Freshman Frank Booker came off the bench to score a career-high 15 points in 20 minutes. He hit a career-high four 3-pointers on six attempts while adding two rebounds and two steals without a turnover.

• Senior Tyler Neal finished with 13 points and five rebounds. It was his eighth double-digit scoring game of the season after not reaching 10 points in a contest last year. Neal had 11 points at halftime.

• Sophomore forward Ryan Spangler recorded his Big 12-leading 10th double-double of the season with 12 points and a team-high 13 rebounds. He was 5-for-7 from the field and added three assists and a block in 29 minutes. Spangler averaged 6.3 rebounds the previous three games. In two Bedlam games this year, Spangler averaged 13.5 points and 15.0 rebounds.

• After starting the game 7-for-13 from the free throw line, Oklahoma made its final eight attempts over the game's last 3:35 to finish 15-for-21 (.714). OSU was 12-for-22 (.545) at the line.

• Oklahoma's bench outscored OSU's 34-1. The 34 bench points were OU's second most of the season and most since its 36 in the second game of the year.

• The Sooners finished 12-for-29 from 3-point range (.414). It was their fourth game of at least 12 3-point makes in Big 12 play (also a 14-make game and two games of 13 conversions).

• Oklahoma is off until next Saturday when its hosts Kansas State at 3 p.m. CT (televised by Big 12 Network).
