Winning the Big 12 is about collecting wins on the road and outside of a blowout win in Austin on January 5th the Sooners haven't been good away from home in league play. Saturday's 69-58 loss to the Baylor Bears, in Waco, knocked Oklahoma down to a 3-4 record in conference and a team that is suddenly on the NCAA Tournament bubble.
Oklahoma shot just 38.7% from the floor against Baylor while the Bears were at 50%. A 6-24 performance from beyond the three-point line was one of the nails in Oklahoma's coffin but you can also throw in a combined 9-21 shooting mark by Oklahoma's big's as the other.
Buddy Hield and Jordan Woodard tied for a team-high 12 points each while TaShawn Thomas and Ryan Spangler added 10 each. Isaiah Cousins (8 points) and Frank Booker (6 points) were the only other two Sooners to record points which means three other guys played and didn't produce points.
Cousins suffered an injury to his right wrist midway through the first half and was limited throughout the remainder of the game when he spent more time on the bench with an ice pack than he did on the floor.
The Sooners return to Norman Wednesday night to host Texas Tech.
