It was a game of runs in Norman on Saturday afternoon, and Oklahoma went on the final scoring run of the day to seal a 74-64 victory over Oklahoma State. The Cowboys cut Oklahoma’s lead down to 62-58 with just under five minutes left, but the Sooners closed the game on a 12-6 run.
Thomas Dziagwa led the way for Oklahoma State with 16 points on 6-12 shooting and 4-8 from three. While Dziagwa shot 50 percent from the field, Oklahoma State only shot 34.4 percent from the field as a team.
A slow start to the game saw the Cowboys trailing 13-4, but the Cowboys would respond and tie the game on several different occasions throughout the game. The first half would prove to be both physical and ugly.
The second half would see a similar result on the scoreboard, with OU outscoring OSU 36-32 to close the game. Both teams struggled with foul trouble throughout the game, and OSU was limited on offense in the first half due to Lindy Waters being in foul trouble.
Oklahoma State’s next game will be on Tuesday at home against a Texas squad that beat Kansas State by 20 points on the road in their Big 12 opener. The Cowboys drop to 0-2 in Big 12 play and will need to shoot the ball better to string together some wins against a tough Big 12 schedule.
