…last time Baylor beat OU in basketball.

They put up a good fight, but failed again last night. The game was unbelievable though. I went with my dad, brother, and great-uncle. Regulation was filled with highlights, most of them from Blake Griffin (who went to our church as a kid). He had several SportsCenter worthy dunks, including one in which he caught an alley-oop off the glass and slammed it. In overtime, the Sooners came back from being down six pints in the final minute to win 92-91. It was OU’s 28th consecutive win against the Bears. The play of the game was Tony Crocker’s four-point play with 7.3 seconds left that proved to be the game-winning shot. Coach Jeff Capel said it was the loudest he had ever heard it at the Lloyd Noble Center.

The lead changes late in the game made it great. The Sooners lead by 10 at halftime, but were down late in regulation. They game back to take the lead, then Baylor scored at the buzzer to send it to overtime. They proceeded to take a 6 point lead. Then Crocker’s four-point play put the Sooner ahead for good.

OU has since beaten Baylor in overtime many more times in our driveway, thanks to Jack Henry.
