Men's basketball: Sooners smother Horned Frogs, 75-48
The Oklahoma men’s basketball team rode its defense to a 75-48 rout of TCU on Monday night at LLoyd Noble Center.
Key stat: TCU shot a dismal 16.7 percent from the field in the first half. Less than a week after holding Kansas to 13 first half points, the Horned Frogs only managed 11 themselves. They didn’t score a point for the first 8:08 of the game and failed to convert a field goal for the first 11:50.
Key performer: Senior forward Romero Osby continued his strong play this season, finishing with 11 points and seven rebounds. He grabbed all seven boards in the first half and only played sparingly in the second.
Key opponent: Sophomore forward Devonta Abron was the lone bright spot for TCU. He scored 12 points and pulled down nine rebounds.
What it means: The Sooners push their Big 12 record to 7-4, keeping them in the NCAA tournament conversation.
Next up for the Sooners: OU travels to Stillwater to take on No. 17 Oklahoma State at 12:30 Saturday afternoon at Gallagher-Iba Arena.
