Trae Young confident Sooners can turn season around

Kansas gets win against Oklahoma in blow out - Recap, Box score

Shay's Slant: Five thoughts after No. 8 Kansas pounds Oklahoma, 104-74

The Jayhawks came from behind to steal a win behind an even more impressive performance by the raucous fans in Allen Fieldhouse. Oklahoma's Brady Manek attempted a corner 3-pointer, but Osetkowski blocked it and saved the ball to a teammate. "I'm not saying it's happened with anybody in particular, but it does happen".

Kerwin Roach scored 12 points, Matt Coleman scored 11 and Mohamed Bamba added 10 points and 18 rebounds for Texas (16-11, 6-8 Big 12), which never trailed and swept the season series for the first time since 2011-12.

KU made 62.5% of its second-half shots by exposing OU's subpar defense over and over again. Here are a few things to know when the Jayhawks host the Sooners. If a driving angle or entry pass to the paint presented itself, Kansas gladly took a layup. Young also scored 43 points on November 26 against OR and again on January 13 versus TCU. Defensively, Kansas yields 70.7 points per game against the opposing teams.

In years past, such a margin in KU's favor would barely inspire a reaction. Graham also had a team-high seven assists and five rebounds, and helped limit Young offensively all night long.

Sharing rebounding responsibilities seemed to be a good sign, too. Young is also the fourth player in program history to score 40 points in a game multiple times, joining Tisdale (five), Stacey King (two), and Jeff Webster (two).

The Kansas Jayhawks (21-6) have won three of their last four games including a 77-69 victory over West Virginia in which Udoka Azuibuike scored 21 points in 7 of 8 shooting from the field and 7 of 10 from the free throw line. Kansas vs Oklahoma tv channel schedule is on ESPN/ESPN3. As a result, the Jayhawks more often than not have lacked production off the bench. The Jayhawks swatted his attempts near the rim and denied Young an opportunity to launch from 3-point range.

Trump Hits WashPost Over Rachel Crooks' Kiss Story: 'False Accusation'
Trump lawyer Michael Cohen recently admitted that he paid former porn star Stormy Daniels $130,000 just before the 2016 election. Rachel Crooks , 35, has told her story publicly many times in the hope of revealing who the real Donald Trump is.

Since that late January day, Azubuike has been a changed man at the free-throw line, rendering the strategy employed by OU coach Lon Kruger useless for the rest of the conference and improving his free-throw percentage by nearly 5 percent.

Young's National Player of the Year candidacy is now on life support, and the Sooners' hopes of making the NCAA Tournament aren't far behind. OU shot just 26 percent from 3 and just 30 percent for the game. Even an appearance by Heisman Trophy victor Baker Mayfield wasn't enough to get the Sooners going. Kansas coach Bill Self left in his big man to let Azubuike solve the problem.

As a result, Young made just 2 of 6 layups in the loss.

The rematch is scheduled Monday in Allen Fieldhouse.

Vick's third 3-pointer of the game kick-started a 16-5 Jayhawk run over the next four minutes to push KU's lead to double figures permanently.

As has been the case all season, Oklahoma is one of the fastest-playing, highest-scoring teams in the country.
