Sooners Pound Wildcats Behind Warren’s 25

For the first time this season Oklahoma's men's basketball team dominated a game from start to finish in their 79-62 win over Arizona. Steven Pledger's free throw put the Sooners up 20-9 at the 12:03 mark of the first half and the game was never in doubt. Willie Warren led all scorers with 25 points followed by Tiny Gallon (14), Tony Crocker (13) and Tommy Mason-Griffin (10).

Of course as usual there are still some concerns about this team and their performance, like getting beat on the boards (32-28) and a bit of a second half shooting slump, but for the most part this was the most dominant and most complete performance we've seen from this team. My favorite stat was that the Sooners only turned the ball over 7 times while stealing the ball 9 times and forcing 17 Arizona turnovers. OU scored 21 points off turnovers, 10 points on fast breaks and had a 34-20 point advantage in the paint.

For lack of better words OU is starting to get their legs underneath them and have proven in the last two games that the team that absolutely fell on its face in Alaska isn't a true representation of who the Sooners are. Guys are starting to learn or adjust to their roles on the squad and hopefully we're seeing the chemistry of three McDonalds All-Americans begin to develop.
