MBB: No. 16 Oklahoma Dominates No. 10 Texas

Buddy Hield scored 13 points and No. 16 Oklahoma built a huge lead in the first half in dominating No. 10 Texas 70-49 Monday night, the Sooners' third straight win in the border rivalry. Oklahoma bolted to a 33-14 lead by halftime. The 14 points set a Texas school record for the fewest scored in a half in a Big 12 game.

Even with point guard Isaiah Taylor back for the second game after missing 10 with a broken left wrist, Texas was a mess offensively with just 6 of 30 shooting in the half and nine turnovers.

Two years ago, the Sooners let Texas rally from 22 points down in the second half to win in overtime. Oklahoma was much more methodical in putting away the Longhorns this year, giving them no chance at a comeback.

Javan Felix scored 13 for Texas.

Oklahoma (11-3, 2-0), which beat a top 10 team on the road for the first time since 1993, had four players score in double figures in earning what could be a huge confidence boost at the start of the Big 12 schedule. (More at News9.com)
