Oklahoma 64, Texas A&M 52
Dec. 21, 2013
Houston, Texas

• Oklahoma improved to 11-1 with a 64-52 win over Texas A&M in the Dickie's Shootout in Houston, Texas. The game, played at Toyota Center, also marked the final game of this year’s Big 12-SEC Challenge (Big 12 won 7-3).

• OU held the Aggies to .269 field goal and .087 (2-for-23) 3-point shooting. A&M entered the game shooting .496 from the field and .341 from long distance.

• A&M's 52 points were the fewest allowed by OU since TCU scored 48 last season (Feb. 11 in Norman). The Aggies' .269 field goal mark was the lowest by an OU foe in six seasons (Texas A&M shot .255 on March 1, 2008, in Norman).

• Texas A&M entered the game outrebounding opponents by 3.5 per game, but the Sooners posted a 50-39 advantage on the glass.  Over the last four games, OU is outboarding opponents by 12.0 a contest.

• OU won despite committing a season-high 22 turnovers.  The Sooners, whose previous season high was 19, had 16 turnovers in the first half alone tonight.  Despite their -10 turnover margin in the game, they outscored A&M 13-10 off turnovers.

• Freshman point guard Jordan Woodard scored 20 points for his second-highest career total.  His 20 points were twice as many as the game's next highest scorer (Jordan Green scored 10 for A&M).  Woodard was 5-for-10 from the field and 9-for-10 at the free throw line.  He is averaging 17.0 points over the last three games.

• Sophomore forward Ryan Spangler tied a career high with 13 rebounds, his sixth double-digit board effort in 12 games.  He scored four points and 2-for-4 shooting and has shot at least 50 percent from the floor in every contest this year.

• Sophomore guard Isaiah Cousins pulled down a career-high seven rebounds to go along with his eight points, two assists and two steals.

• Senior forward Tyler Neal also registered a career high with 10 rebounds in 18 minutes off the bench.  He added eight points and an assist.

• Senior forward Cameron Clark (18.9 ppg) and sophomore guard Buddy Hield (17.3 ppg) entered the game ranked first and fifth in the Big 12 in scoring.  They each posted season lows tonight (six each).

• Oklahoma gave up 18 offensive rebounds while registering 14, but outscored the Aggies 19-6 in second-chance points.

• OU is off until Dec. 30 when it hosts Louisiana Tech in the pre-conference season finale.  The game will tip off at 7 p.m. CT.
