Sooners Survive and Advance with a 84-81 Win Over Hawaii

Games like this will make you age really fast, yet the Sooners are still one of only 5 teams in the country that are undefeated.

The Sooners took a commanding 21-7 lead and it appeared that they would coast to a victory. That was not the case as the Sooners clinged to just a one point lead at the half 41-40. The second half saw a back and forth game, but in the end the Sooners held on for a 3 point win.

Buddy Hield led the way again, pouring in 27 points, but he only had 9 after the 1st half. Khadeem Lattin added a career high 17 points, Isaiah Cousins had 14, but this was a game that was much closer than it should have been as the Rainbow Warriors were led by Roderick Bobbitt's game high 32 points.

The game was sloppy throughout as neither team really found a rhythm in the 2nd half. Throughout much of the game, the Sooners appeared to be tired and sluggish, seemingly on the verge of letting this game slip through their hands.

The good news for the Sooners, they get a day off and will now face Harvard in the championship game of the Diamond Head Class Friday at 7:30 pm Central.
