Welcome back home for the Sooners as OU bounced back after dropping its last two games with a solid 88-72 win against Baylor.

NORMAN, Okla. – After a couple of tough road losses, Oklahoma needed to get back on track. Shooting the best percentage from the field and making a season-high in 3-pointers is definitely a great way to do that.

OU returned home and returned to its winning ways in an 88-72 victory against Baylor on Saturday evening to give OU the season sweep against the Bears.

The theme of the season has been every night could be somebody else. This time around it was sophomore guard Isaiah Cousins, who scored a career-high 21 points. Cousins was 3-of-4 shooting from 3-point territory and added seven rebounds.

The Sooners made 14 of their 29 3-point attempts with sophomore guard Buddy Hield making five of his eight attempts. Hield finished the game with 19 points.

OU shot 53.6 percent from the field and OU fans couldn’t have been happier for senior forward Cameron Clark. Struggling as of late, Clark was 7-of-8 from the floor and scored 16 points.

Following a hot start by Baylor, the Sooners found their footing and took an eight-point lead into halftime and never looked back.

Freshman guard Jordan Woodard didn’t have a great shooting night but did finish with seven assists and only two turnovers.

The win improves the Sooners to 18-6 overall and now 7-4 in conference play.
