Oklahoma Basketball | Scoring Options Emerging In Europe

USA TODAY Sports

"It's not like we have to rely on one guy, who, if he has an off night it's going to be tough. Other guys can pick up the slack and I think we're going to see pretty balanced scoring." - Lon Kruger

The Oklahoma Sooners collected win number two over of their European Tour after a 20-point victory in their debut. Without Buddy Hield as an option, Coach Lon Kruger should find comfort in the fact that he has multiple scoring options to the surprise of many.

Cameron Clark and Jordan Woodard stole the show on Thursday with 20-point performances against Ghent. But, the competition Friday against Waregum produced two more 20+ point performances as Oklahoma routed their foe 84-66. Leading the way was Isaiah Cousins. After getting out to a great start in the first half on 7-of-9 shooting, his streak continued after the break. Cousins finished the game with 23 points on 11-of-15 shooting to go along side three steals and two assists.

The other star of the game was D.J. Bennett, a kid who shines on length and defensive talents. However, he posted 10 points and four rebounds in each half to finish with 20 points and 8 rebounds total, a good sign from the post position. The combination of the aforementioned players gives off a sense of balance to this team.

"I've got to be a role player. That's what he recruited me for. I'm just blessed to have this opportunity and I do what I can. Just try to contribute however." - D.J. Bennett via SoonerSports

Through two contests, the Sooners have had eight different players score 14 or more answering some of the concerns thrown at them toward the end of last season. The most notable skill this group has been working on is ball movement, evident in the video highlights from the tour.

Oklahoma will play for a third straight day on Saturday against St. Jan - Antwerp before heading to France.
