Hard Times

OU forward Andrew Fitzgerald

Once again guard Cade Davis was the only Sooner in double figures and once again, the Sooners were throttled, this time at the hands of the Texas Tech Red Raiders in an 84-58 decision Wednesday night in Lubbock, Texas.

Davis, who finished with a game-high 21 on 9-for-17 shooting, just couldn't do it all on his own.

The rest of the team shot just 12-for-47--that's 25.5 percent--and provided just 37 points on top of Davis' production in one of the worst losses of the season.

OU never led in this one, as Tech got up by as much as 29 points with 48 seconds remaining in the game.

Four Red Raiders finished in double figures, as forward Mike Singletary, Tech's leading scorer, and guard David Tairu, led the way with 17 points.

Guard Wally Dunn added 15, and forward Brad Reese had 12.

Not only were the Sooners dominated on the scoreboard, but they were taken to town on the glass, losing the battle there 46-37.

Tech made 11 threes to just four for OU.

And they were 82.6 percent from the free throw line (19-for-23) to just 52.2 percent for the Sooners (12-for-23).

Not to mention the Red Raiders racked up 19 assists to only six for the visiting Sooners.

Perhaps the one area OU was decent in was the turnover column, where it committed 12 and forced 16 from Tech.

But the Sooners couldn't produce off those, netting just 11 points off turnovers.

OU returns home for the final game of the regular season when it hosts Oklahoma State at 3 p.m. Saturday.
