Oklahoma’s 16th-ranked men’s basketball team blitzed #10 Texas from the start, rolling to a 70-49 win at the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas on Monday  night.

The Sooners led by as many as 28 points, and held the Longhorns to just 14 first half points, the fewest UT has ever scored in a Big 12 game.

OU’s 21-point win matched their biggest win ever in Austin, and matched the worst home loss for Texas under head coach Rick Barnes.

Five Sooners were in double figure scoring, led by Buddy Hield’s 13 points.

TaShawn Thomas and Isaiah Cousins added 12 points each, while Dinjiyl Walker and Jordan Woodard had 10 apiece.

Texas shot just 30 percent from the field for the game, were at 20 percent at halftime.

The win was the Sooners’ first true road win over an Associated Press Top 10 team since beating Kansas in Lawrence in 1993.

Oklahoma improved to 11-3 and 2-0 in Big 12, while Texas dropped to 12-3, 1-1 in conference play.

The Sooners host Kansas State Saturday at 11:00 am in Norman.
