Oklahoma’s 6th-ranked men’s basketball team hit 13-of-21 from three-point range, including a stretch of six straight made three’s from Jordan Woodard, on their way to a 111-68 win over Central Arkansas on Thursday night, December 3, at the Lloyd Noble Center in Norman, Oklahoma.

Woodard led OU with 24 points, hitting 8 of 9 from the field and making six of seven from three-point attempts.

Woodard’s six straight made three-pointers tied an OU school record held by five other Sooners.

Seven Sooners scored in double figures, with Buddy Hield adding 19, Isaiah Cousins 16, and Khadeem Lattin 12.

Three other Sooners had 11 points apiece:  Ryan Spangler, Christian James, and Akolda Manyang.

OU hit 52 percent from the field on their way to scoring their most points in a game since putting up 119 at Colorado on February 17, 1996.

It was the most points Oklahoma has scored at home in a non-overtime since Billy Tubbs’ last season in a 118-91 win over Baylor on January 5, 1994.

Oklahoma improved to 5-0 for the first time since the 2008-09 season when they made the Elite Eight.

OU’s next game comes on Monday,  December 7, when they play Villanova at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii, on the 74th anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941.

Tipoff is 6:00 central time.
