Abi Olajuwon had 19 points and 11 rebounds and third-seeded Oklahoma made the most of a sloppy first half on both ends to beat Arkansas-Little Rock 60-44 Tuesday night in the second round of the NCAA tournament.
The Sooners (25-10) closed a ragged first half with an 11-0 run

to lead UALR as it went for back-to-back wins in its NCAA
