Astrud Reed, The Oklahoma Daily
The OU men’s basketball team completely fell apart in the second half Wednesday night and lost to Texas in overtime, 92-86.
Key stat: 22. The margin of points that OU was outscored by in the final 7:30. Texas finished the game on a 32-10 run.
Key performer: Senior forward Romero Osby had a great game, finishing with 31 points and five rebounds. However, he missed the first of two free throws that would have put OU up by three points with 7 seconds left.
Key opponent: Sophomore guard Myck Kabongo shook off a first half in which he only scored three points, to have a fantastic game, putting up 31 points, eight rebounds, six assists and four steals. He also hit a buzzer-beating prayer of a shot to send the game to overtime.
What it means: OU falls to 9-6 in the Big 12, putting its NCAA tournament hopes in some amount of doubt.
Next up for the Sooners: Oklahoma heads home to take on Iowa State at 12:30 p.m. Saturday.
