• OU held a 30-12 halftime lead, limiting the Cowboys to just four field goals on 34 possessions. OSU was 4-for-24 from the field in the first half and 1-for-7 from 3-point range. The second half told a different story, as OSU scored 52 points on .500 field goal and .500 3-point (12-for-24) 3-point shooting.
• OSU's 12 points in the first 20 minutes marked the program's fewest ever in a half of Big 12 play. Its previous low was 16 in the first half of a 1999 game against the Sooners.
• Oklahoma State used a 27-12 run over the first seven minutes of the second half to cut OU's 18-point halftime lead to three (42-39). The Sooners responded with a 16-3 run over the next five minutes to go back up by 16 (58-42). OU stretched its advantage to 20 before settling for the 13-point win.

On the year, Grooms leads the Big 12 with his 6.1 assists per game and 3.1 assist-to-turnover ratio.
