Oklahoma State upsets No 4 Oklahoma in Stillwater

Oklahoma State upsets No 4 Oklahoma in Stillwater

Senior center Kaylee Jensen led Oklahoma State in points and rebounds with 29 and 13, respectively.

Reports of Trae Young's demise were greatly exaggerated.

The No. 4 Oklahoma Sooners (14-3) are coming from an 87-69 loss to the Kansas State Wildcats in which Trae Young scored 20 points in 8 of 21 shooting from the field and 2 of 4 from the free throw line.

Florida 66, No. 18 Kentucky 64: Jalen Hudson came off the bench to score 17 points, and Chris Chiozza, Keith Stone and Kevarrius Hayers contributed clutch baskets down the stretch as the Gators (14-5, 6-1 SEC) rallied to upset the Wildcats (14-5, 4-3). But K-State has been a bit of a surprise, moving to 3-3 in conference games after throttling fourth-ranked Oklahoma on Tuesday, and has lost starting guard Jaylen Fisher indefinitely to a right knee injury. The victory keeps the Cowboys in the running for a spot in the NCAA Tournament, and certainly hurts the Sooners' efforts to catch Kansas in the Big 12 title race. Oklahoma vs Oklahoma State live stream is on WatchESPN. Defensively, Oklahoma yields 81.5 points per game against the opposing teams. Khadeem Lattin leads in rebounds with 6.6 while Young tops in assists with 9.8 per game.

It just wasn't enough.

Young scored six of OU's eight points in the overtime session, but the Sooners never led in OT, suffering their third Big 12 loss and second in the same week. This lack of scoring output from the OU support cast is going to have to turn around quickly or the Sooners are going to find themselves on the losing end more often than not.

Young also took a career-high 38 shots, made 8-of-20 three pointers and had eight assists. The rest of his teammates combined made just 14 of 43 shot attempts. Houston 73, No. 7 Wichita State 59: Rob Gray scored 24 points and the Cougars (15-4, 5-2 AAC) beat a Top 10 team for the first time in 22 years, with a win against the Shockers (15-4, 5-2).
