NORMAN, Okla. (AP) Buddy Hield scored 18 points, Isaiah Cousins added 12 and the Sooners pulled away for a 78-56 victory over Texas A&M-Corpus Christi on Thursday in a matinee that was rescheduled to start earlier because of concerns over bad weather.
Hield made eight of his 14 shots from the field and Cousins hit half of his 10. Overall, the Sooners (7-1) shot 45 percent as they wrapped up a three-game home stand, but the Islanders were even colder at 38 percent.
Texas A&M-Corpus Christi (3-7) was led by 12 points and a game-high 10 rebounds from freshman Rashawn Thomas, a 6-foot-7 Oklahoma City native making his college debut. Guard John Jordan added 11 points for the Islanders.
