There’s no denying that the Oklahoma Sooners continue to stuggle without leading scorer, Jordan Woodard on the court. Matched against the Kansas St. Wildcats in Manhattan, the Sooners hoped to end a five game skid. Lon Kruger watched on as his program dropped a sixth consecutive game by a final of 75-64.
Unable to dig out of a 25-9 hole, Oklahoma attempted to play catch up the entire outing. Doing his part, Kameron McGusty poured in a game high 20 points coming off the bench in 30 minutes of action. There are a few bright spots on this team, yet it seems as though the youngster never manage to put together a complete 40 minutes of play.
Pulling to within six point on numerous occasions, OU never seemed able to make it over the hump. On the other end of the equation Barry Brown continuously pulled off key plays to regain momentum in front of a home crowd.
As far as Bruce Weber is concerned, his Wildcats put together possibly their most impressive game of the season. Each of the starting five scored in double figures with Wesley Iwundu collecting 16 points to lead the charge. However, KSU made their living at the free throw line while keeping their counter part away from the stripe. Attempting 23 free throws, Kansas St. connected on 16 of those, a game deciding number when broken down.
Now, the Kansas Jayhawks wait on the horizon for Oklahoma. Set to tip off on Tuesday at 8:00 PM, can the Sooners put together an impressive stretch to cling closely to KU? Only time will tell as this group must decide for themselve enough is enough when it comes to losses in conference play.
