Hield leads No. 15 Oklahoma past Oral Roberts

Buddy Hield scored 16 points to help No. 15 Oklahoma defeat Oral Roberts 85-53 on Tuesday night.

TaShawn Thomas, a senior transfer from the University of Houston, followed up his 25-point outing against Tulsa last Saturday by scoring 14 points for the Sooners. He got up holding his right wrist after going after a loose ball with 15:17 to play and did not return.

Ryan Spangler had 13 points and 10 rebounds, Isaiah Cousins scored 13 points and Jordan Woodard added eight points and eight assists for Oklahoma (7-2), which shot 54 percent from the field to win its third straight.

Bobby Word led Oral Roberts (4-5) with 19 points. Oral Roberts' Obi Emegano, a guard who entered the game leading the Golden Eagles with 16.9 points per game, went scoreless and missed all three of his shots in 26 minutes.
