NCAA Game Summary - Oklahoma State at Oklahoma



(Monday, January 27th)

Final Score: (23) Oklahoma 88, (8) Oklahoma State 76

Norman, OK (SportsNetwork.com) - Ryan Spangler scored 15 points and grabbed a career-high 17 rebounds, as No. 23 Oklahoma upended eighth-ranked Oklahoma State, 88-76, on Monday at Lloyd Noble Center.

Jordan Woodard registered 18 points, while Tyler Neal netted 15 points on 5- of-6 shooting from the field for the Sooners (17-4, 6-2 Big 12), who have won four straight.

"I just kept finding spots and my teammates kept finding me with the ball," Woodard remarked. "They just wanted me to shoot it when I was open."

Marcus Smart supplied 22 points on just 6-of-18 shooting from the floor, while Phil Forte went 6-of-6 from 3-point range en route to 20 points for the Cowboys (16-4, 4-3), who have dropped two of their last three games.

"I don't really care about how I played individually," Forte said. "I would much rather go 1-for-50, like I did against West Virginia, and win. That's all I really care about is winning. I'll do whatever it takes for my team to win."

Smart sank a pair of 3-pointers and Markel Brown added a pair of buckets to help Oklahoma State grab a 10-7 lead just over four minutes in, but the Sooners scored the next 13 points to build a double-digit lead.

Spangler scored the first five points in the surge, while Neal knocked down a triple before capping the run with a three-point play for a 20-10 lead.

A Forte 3-pointer found the Cowboys within 38-33 with just over four minutes left in the frame, but Neal knocked down a triple of his own inside of a minute remaining to help the Sooners take a 46-38 spread into the locker room.

Woodard drained a pair of treys around a Smart jumper early in the second and Frank Booker followed with four straight points to push Oklahoma's lead to 60-43 just over six minutes into the second half.

OSU answered with a 14-4 flurry that Brown capped with a dunk to bring the visitors within seven, but a swift 7-2 swing from the Sooners had the margin back above double digits with 7 1/2 minutes to play.

The Cowboys made one last push when Le'Bryan Nash buried a jumper after a Brown three-point play to make it 76-70, but Oklahoma countered with seven straight points for an 83-70 lead with 1:45 left.

Oklahoma State failed to get closer than 10 the rest of the way.

Game Notes

Brown finished with 18 points and seven rebounds, but went 0-for-5 from 3- point range for Oklahoma State, which shot 9-for-24 from distance overall ... Buddy Hield had 11 points for OU ... It was the first time both teams have entered a "Bedlam" rivalry game ranked since 2005. The rematch is set for Feb. 15 at Oklahoma State.
