Still, it was a game OU controlled most of the way. Despite trailing by 11 points midway through the first half, it closed the first half with a 27-8 run and 35-27 at halftime. OSU didn’t get the lead again until overtime.
The Sooners shot 47.5 percent (29 for 61) and only committed nine turnovers. Three, however, were in overtime. One or two more plays on either end would have been enough to give the Sooners a victory on Saturday.
“I’m proud of our guys,” Kruger said. “Disappointed in not finishing it and not winning the ball game, but we got beat by a really good Oklahoma State ball club that played well. We’ll grow from this. We’ve got to keep making progress. We’ve got a lot of season left. We’ll keep getting better.”
