The fifth-ranked Oklahoma men's basketball team got a test early, but proved to be too tough to handle in their 88-60 rout over Binghamton Wednesday night in Norman.
The Sooners, who led at the half 50-31, shot 54.7 percent from the floor while also hittting 11 of their 20 attempts from behind the arc and 19 of 24 from the free throw line.
All-American candidate Taj Gray was outstanding for the Sooners scoring 14 points and grabbing eight rebounds, along with one assist, four blocks and two steals in just 21 minutes of action.
Sophomore guard David Godbold got off to a good start shooting the three and finished with 14 points and three rebounds.
Junior college transfer Michael Neal, who hit five 3-pointes in OU's season opener on Saturday, came off the bench to hit four Wednesday en route to finishing with 14 points and four rebounds.
Once again, Chris Walker, another junior college transfer, drew the start at point and made a couple of jumpers early before finishing with nine points, four assists and two turnovers.
Transfer Nate Carter looks more comfortable by the minute after sitting out all last year scoring. The junior finished with nine points and four rebounds in 18 minutes of action.
Senior guard Terrell Everett scored nine points and dished a game-high eight assists.
Oklahoma (2-0) will host Belmont Saturday night at the LNC at 8:00 p.m.
