OU shot .545 from the field, marking the fourth time in eight games it has posted a figure above .500.
The Sooners' 50 rebounds were a season high (previous high was 44 versus Alcorn State), as were their 18 offensive boards and their 17-board advantage (TCU entered the game averaging 47 rebounds but finished with 33).
