It was a rough shooting night for the Sooners but somehow Lon Kruger's squad was able to pull out a close win in the Lloyd Noble Center. By virtue of their 71-69 victory over the Longhorns, Oklahoma remains in contention for second place in the conference and nabbing that precious first round bye in the conference tournament. Here are a few things that you may, or may not, have noticed during Oklahoma's game against Texas.

* Tuesday night marked Oklahoma's fourth consecutive win over the Longhorns in basketball.

* Oklahoma turned a six point deficit at the 3:36 mark of the second half into a five point lead with just five seconds left by going on a 13-2 run.

* Tuesday night marked just the second time this season that the Sooners won a game by 10 points or less. Oklahoma won 64-56 at Oklahoma State on January 31 as well.

* Oklahoma committed a season-low five turnovers in the game but also had a season-high 13 shots blocked.

* Six of Jordan Woodard's team-high thirteen points came in the final 3:13 second of the game, giving him nearly half of Oklahoma's rally points.

* Buddy Hield's twelve points marked the twentieth consecutive game Oklahoma's junior guard has scored ten points or more.

* Frank Booker grabbed a season-high four rebounds to go along with his ten points.

* Dinjiyl Walker had scored five total points in Oklahoma's last eight games. He came off the bench to score ten on Tuesday night which is the most he's scored since the Sooners played in Austin on January 5th. He apparently really enjoys playing the Longhorns.

* Oklahoma outscored Texas 18-6 off turnovers.

* Texas Head Coach Rick Barnes was going for his 400th win. Looks like he's gonna have to wait on it.
