Oklahoma Upsets No. 3 Wichita State, 91-83”

Oklahoma freshman star Trae Young scored 29 points and handed out 10 assists, leading the Sooners to a 91-83 upset of No. 3 Wichita State on Saturday at Charles Koch Arena in Wichita, Kan. Sixteen of Manek's 21 points came in the first half, helping the Sooners open up a double-digit lead.

It was the Sooners' first true road game of the season and their second straight win over a ranked team, having defeated No. 25 USC a week ago in the Basketball Hall of Fame Classic in Los Angeles.

The Sooners utilized the three ball to their advantage, knocking down 13 shots from deep, while the Shockers were limited to 6-for-24 from beyond the arc.

The Shockers were led by senior Darral Willis Jr., who finished with 20 points and 12 rebounds off the bench.

Following the upset win, Oklahoma moves to 8-1 on the season.

While Young gets the pub, freshman forward Brady Manek delivered some much needed assistance, knocking down five 3-pointers (a new career-high) and finishing with 21 points. Landry Shamet added 17 points and Frankamp finished with 14 points for Wichita State.

The win improved OU's all-time record against Wichita State to 5-2, and 4-0 in games played in Wichita. They last won a game against an AP Top-3 program in 2003 when they knocked off the Connecticut Huskies. It's the first time the Shockers have cracked the top five since 2014. Wichita State hosts Arkansas State on Tuesday. He'll look to continue his torrid pace Tuesday against Northwestern State.
