Red Raiders surprise Sooners

Red Raiders surprise Sooners

Posted: Updated:

That's why the play the game is a phrase that definitely fits Wednesday's Oklahoma-Texas Tech basketball.  Oklahoma had handled the Red Raiders in Lubbock earlier this season and were a solid pick to get it done again.  But the Sooners trailed virtually the entire game and lost 68-60.

Texas Tech led by 16 points at the half and pushed the lead to 20 in the second half before Oklahoma went on a 19-4 run.  They got within six points but could not come all the way back.  Cameron Clark led OU with 16 points while Jelon Hornbeak was a key player in the second half run and ended with 9 points.

OU hit just 6-27 three pointers and shot just 42 percent from the field.  The loss dropping Oklahoma's record to 18-7 and 7-5 in the conference while Tech raised its mark to 13-11, and 5-6 in the league.  Oklahoma will play at Oklahoma State Saturday at 1:00.

    The Oklahoma City Thunder traded backup center Hasheem Thabeet to the Philadelphia 76ers. The Thunder send cash and Thabeet in exchange for a protected second round pick in 2015 and a trade exception.The move saves OKC $1.25 million that they would have had to pay Thabeet if he had been on the roster August 31st. Oklahoma City now has about $2.8 million in cap space to tinker with the roster that has 14 players.It's expected Philly will waive Thabeet to avoid paying him $1.25 million.

    Before the season started the Oklahoma defense was billed as being deep in the defensive line with plenty of big play ability at linebacker and a secondary that was young at safety.After Saturday's 32 point win over Louisiana Tech they proved worthy of that assessment. Louisiana Tech quarterback Cody Sokol spent much of the game running for his life as the OU defense spent much of the game in the Bulldog backfield."They together were really good.

    Many people will say you can't get anything out of beating an overmatched opponent.  Oklahoma did play an overmatched Louisiana Tech team but they did what you're supposed to do.  They dominated from the start and won a game that wasn't as close as even a 48-16 blowout suggests it was.
