Oklahoma Sooners basketball: OU makes history with romp of Weber State


There was never a doubt in this game. Not one.

The Oklahoma Sooners responded to Saturday’s loss to undefeated Washington with a total obliteration of the Weber State Wildcats.

Oklahoma convincingly won, 85-51, over the defending Big Sky champions, and it was a historic night for the Sooners.

Weber State’s Joel Bolomboy gave the Wildcats four points with a dunk at the 12:55 mark in the first half. The Wildcats would not score again until 1:57 remained in period, but by then, the game was completely over and Oklahoma went on a D1 record 39-0 run.

It felt like Oklahoma was playing against a high school team as the Weber State Wildcats could not compete with an angry and determined Oklahoma team coming off a heartbreaking loss in Las Vegas.

The Sooners did not see any exhaustion from their weekend trip, and this win showed what they can do as a unit.

It wasn’t just about one guy scoring all the points or getting hot; all in all, it was far from a fluke.

Oklahoma’s defense completely shut down the Wildcat offense, forced turnovers, and an efficient shooting night certainly helped Oklahoma achieve their new D1 record.

Ryan Spangler and Jordan Woodard certainly tried to erase Saturday’s loss from their memory. They led the team with 15 points a piece.

Buddy Hield, TaShawn Thomas, and Dinjiyl Walker were also in double figures for an Oklahoma squad that put up 51 points in the first half alone and made life a living hell for Weber State.

It almost seemed unfair at times, and anyone who decided to leave the game early were at no fault. This was a snoozer, but it was a momentum boost for an Oklahoma team that can’t get too disgruntled heading in to a tough Big 12 slate.

The Sooners final out-of-conference match-up will come on New Years Eve against George Mason. Tip-off will be set for 4 p.m. CT, so before you go celebrate the new year, you can get one last look at the 19th-ranked Sooners when they go for the ninth win of the year.
