Record-Setting Run Leads Sooners Over Weber State
Oklahoma’s men’s basketball team set an NCAA record with a 39-0 run to blow the game open in the first half on their way to an 85-51 win over Weber State on Monday night at the Lloyd Noble Center in Norman.
The Sooners started the game by outscoring the Wildcats 49-4, with the last 39 points all in a row.
That 39-0 run broke the previous record of 37-0 by Utah State against Idaho in 2006.
OU shot 58 percent from the field for the game and had five players in double figure scoring.
Ryan Spangler and Jordan Woodard paced the Sooners with 15 points apiece, while TaShawn Thomas added 13 points on 6 of 7 shooting.
Buddy Hield and Dinjiyl Walker both scored 10 points.
Oklahoma forced 23 Weber State turnovers in the win and held the Wildcats to just 26 percent field goal shooting.
The Sooners improved to 8-3 on the season and will close non-conference play when they host George Mason at 4:00 on New Year’s Eve.
