The Oklahoma Sooners closed out play in Belgium with another 20+ point victory before heading to France.

During the last stop in Belgium, the Oklahoma Sooners took on yet another semi-pro team in Antwerp. While the story played out a bit differently, the result was the same as Lon Kruger & Co. walked away with an 89-68 victory.

The Sooners jumped out to an early 28-12 lead due in part to defense, a component that Kruger's teams depend upon. That lead was cut down to ten before the half. From there, play remained up and down as Oklahoma found themselves with a mere five point advantage in the fourth quarter.

"A little sporadic with our play; it was the third game in three days. Coming back today in an afternoon game, I thought our guys battled that pretty well. We had good stretches in the ball game. We need to continue to work on identifying what we want to do defensively and do it a little more consistently. But we had a lot of good play." - Lon Kruger via SoonerSports

The final score may not provide an accurate picture of how competitive the game had become. With just under six minutes left in regulation, Oklahoma rattled off a 15-2 run to seal the deal.

Five players on the Sooner roster found themselves in double digits. Ahead of the pack was once again Cameron Clark with a team high 18 points. Join in on the party was Ryan Spangler with 14, Je'lon Hornbeak and Tyler Neal with 12 and Jordan Woodard with 10.

Oklahoma will take a few days off before picking up play in France on Wednesday.
