Oklahoma was looking for a spark to begin Big 12 conference play, but when you’re without the heart and soul of the team, that’s tough to do.
The Sooners were ineffective for most of the night in a 76-50 loss to No. 4-ranked Baylor on Friday evening at Lloyd Noble Center.
Woodard missed his second game in a row and was a late scratch because of an undisclosed medical condition. Even with Woodard, it would have been tough to give the Bears their first loss of the season. But without Woodard, OU (6-6, 0-1 Big 12) simply didn’t have the firepower.
Baylor, who might be the most impressive team in the country during the first month of the season, came out the gate early with an 11-2 lead and never backed off.
OU’s Christian James led the Sooners with 11 points, while Khadeem Lattin had eight points, five rebounds and three blocks.
OU has lost four games in a row and five of its last six. The Sooners will look to get back on track Wednesday at TCU.
