NORMAN, Okla. (AP) -- Oklahoma has been waiting for the Amath M'Baye who averaged 12 points and 5.7 rebounds a game as a sophomore at Wyoming to make his presence felt this season.
If the last two games are any indication, the junior transfer may have arrived just in time for the new year.
Coming off of a 16-point, six-rebound performance that earned him Big 12
newcomer of the week honors, M'Baye scored 14 points and pulled down
six boards to help lead the Sooners to a 72-42 win over Texas
A&M-Corpus Christi on Monday in the first game played at OU's
McCasland Field House since 1975.
M'Baye was 7 of 11 from the field to complement a game-high 17-point
effort from Steven Pledger, who connected on 5 of 10 shots from beyond
the arc. While M'Baye paced OU with eight first-half points, Pledger led
the way with 11 points after the break, for the Sooners (9-3).
"These two (Pledger and M'Baye) stepped up and made shots, and it's
good to see that," said OU coach Lon Kruger. "It gives you a good
foundation and a good cornerstone to work from, and I think the other
guys gain confidence when guys are stepping up and making shots like
today." (Recap and More at SoonerSports.com)
