Astrud Reed, The Oklahoma Daily
OU won its second and final exhibition game this season, 94-66, against Central Oklahoma at McCasland Field House as part of the Field House Series.
How the Sooners won: Behind its trio of fantastic freshmen guards Buddy Hield, Isaiah Cousins and Je’lon Hornbeak — who combined to score 40 of the Sooners’ 94 points — OU simply outplayed UCO in nearly every facet of the game.
Key stat: OU outscored the Bronchos off turnovers, 25-5.
Key performer: Freshman guard Buddy Hield came off the bench to lead the Sooners in scoring for the second game in a row, going 7-for-13 from the field, 3-for-4 from three and pulling down three rebounds.
Key opponent: Junior guard Christian Huffman led the Bronchos 11 points on 5-for-8 shooting.
What it means: OU dominated a game it was supposed to dominate, and now the Sooners move on to their regular season opener against Louisiana-Monroe on Sunday.
