Fifty percent.

Player of the Game: Cameron Clark. The sophomore played with confidence and aggression, finishing with 16 points on 8 of 14 shooting. He added four rebounds and three steals.

Unsung Hero: Tyler Neal. Saturday’s performance makes back-to-back solid production from Neal. The sophomore had 10 points on 4 of 7 shooting with three rebounds and two blocked shots.

Key Stat: 18.1 percent. It was a tough shooting day for OU’s leading scorer Steven Pledger, who was 2 of 11 from the field including 0 of 4 from the three-point line. He scored seven points, 10 points less than his season average.
