On senior day, the Oklahoma Sooners played host to the West Virginia Mountaineers looking to settle the regular season score after suffering a defeat in Morgantown. With NCAA Tournament hopes still on the line, a loss to a struggle program would like exclude OU from the consideration. Finding success on both ends of the court, the Sooners kept their dreams alive by securing at 92-80 victory.

Transferring in, Aaron Calixte took the reigns as the most experience point guard on the roster. Entering the starting lineup, the senior answered a major question mark for the season. Finding a rhythm with the rest of the team, Calixte produced his best game to date behind a 22 point effort.

Joining in on the scoring out put, Jamal Bieniemy connected on 4-of-5 three points attempts to spread the floor consistently. Making numerous trips to the charity stripe, the freshman added another eight points to the board. Finishing with 22 points of his own, Bieniemy appears to have a bright future.

As a team, Oklahoma shot 59.2% from the floor and 46.7% from beyond the arc in what could easily be categorized as the best offensive outing of the season. Looking ahead to the final two games of the regular slate, the Sooners must find similar successes on the court.
