Oklahoma basketball: Sooners wreck Texas Tech's ideal Big 12 record

Oklahoma basketball: Sooners wreck Texas Tech's ideal Big 12 record”

"There are mistakes all over in every game, but there are only certain players like Trae that can put the ball wherever he wants".

He has Oklahoma (13-2, 3-1 Big 12) poised to make a run to end Kansas' historic string of Big 12 regular-season championships.

"I was thinking about this game all night", Young said. "I just settled down the second half. I was just looking to attack a lot more in the second half and be more physical in the second half". Texas Tech entered the night ranked fourth in the nation in scoring defense, allowing 59 points per game. Christian James joined Trae Young in double-figures with 15 points.

Lattin anchored a strong defensive effort for a team that is better known for lighting up the scoreboard.

Texas Tech (14-1, 3-0 Big 12) vaulted 10 spots in Monday's poll, earning its highest ranking since being a program-best No. 7 in March 1996.

Liberty 63, Winthrop 37: Keyen Green shot 70 percent and scored 18 points as the Flames torched the Eagles.

"I thought both teams did a good job of disrupting the other, especially in the first half", Oklahoma coach Lon Kruger said. "A lot of them were contested".

Young certainly did his damage from the free-throw line, making six of eight attempts in the second half.

OU got off to a sluggish start, not shooting all that well in the early going, but Trae Young and Company found the range in the second half, overcoming a two-point deficit in the opening 20 minutes and taking command in the second half in pulling away for a 75-65 victory and improving to 3-1 in Big 12 play.

Tech later closed the gap to four, but the Sooners bounced back again.

No. 21 Kentucky 74, Texas A&M 73: PJ Washington made a steal that led to Kevin Knox's go-ahead layup with 2:28 left, then added 4 points down the stretch to help the Wildcats rally past the Aggies in a Southeastern Conference game in Lexington, Ky. More so, he was efficient from the field (6 of 11) while knocking down four of his seven shots from the 3-point line.

UNC Asheville 67, Radford 56: Destinee Walker was the Highlanders' top scorer off the bench with 14 points, but a 20-point game from Khaila Webb pushed the Bulldogs (5-9, 2-1 Big South) past Radford (8-6, 1-2).
