No. 22 Oklahoma defeated Missouri 82-63

Number 22 University of Oklahoma defeated Missouri 82-63 Friday night in the SEC/Big 12 challenge.

The Sooners shot 57 percent from the field and made 10 of 20 3-pointers.

Sources state that what changed the game was the way Oklahoma defended after halftime.  The Sooners opened the second half on a 15-0 run. Missouri (4-4) didn’t score for the first 5:16 of the second half and missed its first seven shots after the break.

It’s a big step for a team that wasn’t always focused on defense a year ago.  “Defensively, we’ve been making progress and we’ve been getting better,” Oklahoma coach Lon Kruger said.

Oklahoma (5-2) was coming off a runner-up finish in the Battle 4 Atlantis.
