Kristian Doolittle scored a game-high 22 points and De’Vion Harmon sparked a second half surge, off the bench, and the Sooners walked off the court of the Frank Erwin Center winners for the first time since 2015.
Shooting 50% from the floor, and 40% from three-point range, Oklahoma overcame a 9-point deficit near the midway mark of the first half. Trailing 24-15, following an Andrew Jones jump shot, the Sooners closed out the half on a 19-9 run.
Embracing his role off the bench, Harmon scored all nine of his points in the second half as the Sooners grew a one-point, 34-33, halftime lead to a mildly comfortable 72-62 final. Harmon’s three stills helped fuel Oklahoma’s second half run.
Jamal Bieniemy scored 11 points and Austin Reaves posted 10 to join Doolittle in double figure scoring.
Having now won four games in a row, the Sooners now stand at 11-3 on the season and 2-0 in conference play with a trip to Ames, Iowa looming this weekend.
