Baylor's Talent Proves Too Much For Oklahoma As They Down The Sooners 77-65

Simply put, this was a game of streaks. Baylor was able to put streak after streak together while Oklahoma followed suit with a run of their own. While Baylor never relinquished the lead and at points built double digit leads, OU got within striking distance and had the potential to tie up.

Leading the Baylor Bears was none other that Perry Jones III with a career night. Jones finished the game with 21 points and 12 rebounds. To compliment what Jones was doing Pierre Jackson poured in another 16 points while dishing out 7 assists. Jackson was able to penetrate and pick this defense apart while finding the open man.

On the other side of things, Oklahoma was crippled yet again by the production off the bench. This is something that needs a solution and fast. Four points from the bench relieves absolutely no pressure from the starting five. There were a few bright spots as Romero Osby had a couple of monster dunks to spark his teammates. Steven Pledger used his reputation as a solid shooter to sell the pump then step to the side and drill an open shot. However, Andrew Fitzgerald was as cold as ice and never really found his game.

Baylor was able to out rebound Oklahoma 28-24 and with 50% shooting from beyond the arc, Baylor was proving tough to beat. With all the talent that Baylor possesses, Oklahoma was still able to hang tough and the score is a bit misleading. OU is certainly taking steps in the right direction and has nothing to be ashamed about with this loss.
