Bedlam Part II Report Card

NORMAN, Okla. -- Sooners Illustrated grades out OU's 64-61 weekend victory over the Oklahoma State Cowboys at Lloyd Noble Center.

Overall team performance: B-

Yes, it's a Bedlam victory, and yes, it broke an eight-game losing streak, but this one certainly wasn't pretty. The Sooners were outscored in the paint 34-16, lost the rebounding battle 35-26, had just 10 assists to 14 turnovers, gave up 10 second chance points to only two of their own and shot just 41.9 percent. In the end, though, a win is a win, so it has to be an above average grade.

G Cade Davis: A+

Davis led his squad on his Senior Day with 22 points, 11 in each half, on 6-for-12 shooting, as well as 10-for-13 from the free throw line. He also racked up a team-high six rebounds to go along with three assists. The only blemish on his stat line were four turnovers, but in a full 40 minutes, that's forgivable.

G Cameron Clark: A

He responded from several poor outings by netting 15 points on 4-for-9 from the field, and he was nearly perfect from the charity stripe, making 6-of-7 there. Clark also brought down four rebounds and swiped a steal. He played the second-most minutes at 38.

G Carl Blair: B-

Blair had nine points, three rebounds and two assists on a day where he shot 3-for-7 from the field. He was 2-for-2 from the line but just 1-for-5 from 3-point range. In 23 minutes, though, his most concerning stat line was a negative assist-turnover ratio, where he committed one more turn than dimes.

F Andrew Fitzgerald: B-

Fitzgerald finished with five points and five rebounds, as he shot 2-of-6. In 31 minutes playing time, he also had a trio of assists but two turnovers. Fitzgerald made 1-of-2 from the free throw line.

F Tyler Neal: D-

In 11 minutes, he was basically a non-factor. Neal managed just two points—both were at the free throw line— as he was 0-for-2 shooting in the contest. Neal had just two rebounds and committed just as many turnovers.

Bench: C-

Guard Steven Pledger had a really solid outing, with 11 points on 3-for-7 shooting, all three makes behind the arc, but besides that, the bench struggled. In fact, the Cowboy reserves outscored OU's 22-11. Aside from Pledger, guard Calvin Newell and forwards C.J. Washington and Barry Honore combined for just a rebound and an assist but two turnovers and three fouls.
