Guard Cade Davis, as he has in recent weeks, led the way again with a 24-point scoring burst on 8-for-13 shooting.
And this time, several Sooners followed suit.
But that just wasn't nearly enough to overcome OU's huge first half lead.
The Crimson and Cream, a seven-point underdog coming into the contest, trailed 13-9 before using a 30-9 run to build a 17-point intermission lead.
And after leading 39-22 at the break, they never let the Bears crawl to closer than 16 again.
In fact, the Sooners led by as much as 25 when forward Tyler Neal hit a couple of free throws at the 3:52 mark.
With the win, Capel's job certainly does become that much more secure, and the Sooners will live to fight another day, as they'll face No. 2 seed Texas at 6 p.m. tomorrow.
