Oklahoma basketball: Sooners fall short in Bedlam overtime thriller

Share

That apparently didn't sit well with Cowboy senior Jeffrey Carroll, who resurfaced Young's cold take with a message of his own after Oklahoma State's big win on Saturday.

Sooners star freshman Trae Young continues to dominate, this time tying the Big 12 single-game scoring record of 48 in the loss.

Oklahoma State sent the game to OT in the final seconds on this three from Kendall Smith. Ball security issues were problematic again as he had more than five turnovers for the sixth time in seven games and his field goal attempts accounted for almost 50 percent of Oklahoma's total shots Saturday. Smith's three-pointer with 8 seconds left in regulation tied it at 73. Ariel Atkins of ninth-ranked Texas was named the player of the week on Monday after averaging 23.5 points, 7.5 rebounds and 5.5 steals in games against and Kansas.

Eight minutes into the game, Young was just 3 of 13 from the floor and one for six from three-point range.

Florida 66, No. 18 Kentucky 64: Jalen Hudson came off the bench to score 17 points, and Chris Chiozza, Keith Stone and Kevarrius Hayers contributed clutch baskets down the stretch as the Gators (14-5, 6-1 SEC) rallied to upset the Wildcats (14-5, 4-3). Defensively, Oklahoma yields 81.5 points per game against the opposing teams.

Oklahoma State scored first in overtime on a three-pointer by Tavarius Shine, and that turned out to be the beginning of the end for the visiting Sooners.

Oklahoma State fans promptly stormed the court.

It just wasn't enough.

Young took almost half of Oklahoma's 82 shots in the game, going 14 of 39. Mitchell Solomon leads in rebounds with 6.6 while Smith tops in assists with 3.3 per game.

The Oklahoma State Cowboys (12-6) are coming from a 76-60 loss to the Baylor Bears in which Cameron McGriff scored 16 points in 7 of 10 shooting from the field and 2 of 2 from the free throw line. Oklahoma State scored 18 points off of 14 Oklahoma turnovers and 22 second-chance points.
