Baylor Vs. Oklahoma: Sooners Win 73-66 In Wednesday Matinée

(Sports Network) – Cameron Clark led the way with a game-high 25 points and added seven rebounds, as Oklahoma held on for a 73-66 victory over Baylor in Big 12 action.

The game was originally scheduled for Tuesday, but was postponed because of a winter storm.

Carl Blair finished with 19 points, seven assists and five boards for Oklahoma (14-11, 4-3 Big 12), which has won four straight after a three-game slide. Steven Pledger contributed 10 points and six assists, while Andrew Fitzgerald went for 10 points and six rebounds before fouling out.

Perry Jones III had a team-best 19 points to go with seven boards for Baylor (14-7, 4-4), which has dropped four of its last six. Anthony Jones and LaceDarius Dunn donated 16 and 15 points, respectively, in defeat.

Baylor dictated the pace for the majority of the opening half and held a 39-34 edge at the intermission and were ahead 50-43 nearly four minutes into the second before Oklahoma made its move.

Pledger and Blair hit back-to-back three-pointers to cap a 10-0 run and put the Sooners in front 53-50 with 11 1/2 minutes to play.

A triple from Clark with 6:19 left stretched the hosts’ lead to 63-53 and they would fend off a late charge by Baylor in the remaining time on the clock.
