Pledger gets hot, Oklahoma tops Ohio 74-63

AP - Sports

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) -- Steven Pledger scored 14 of his 18 points in the second half, Amath M'Baye and Romero Osby added 16 points apiece and Oklahoma pulled away in the second half to beat Ohio 74-63 on Saturday night.

Cameron Clark had back-to-back dunks in transition to spark a 15-2 run by the Sooners (8-3) and put the game away after Ohio had cut an 11-point deficit down to four. Pledger followed with a fall-away jumper and a 3-pointer from the right wing, and the lead eventually got as big as 71-54.

D.J. Cooper had 14 points and seven assists to lead the Bobcats (8-5), which matched their season-worst with 18 turnovers and went 8 for 26 from 3-point range. Reggie Keely scored 13 points and Walter Offutt chipped in 11 points.

Oklahoma bounced back from a loss to Stephen F. Austin and kept from losing two straight non-conference home games for the first time since November 1997.
