Oklahoma City, Okla. — Oklahoma (7-3) improved to 7-3 with a 58-48 win over Tulsa (8-2) in the All-College Classic on Thursday.

The Sooners, who held the Golden Hurricane to their lowest scoring total of the season and to just 28 percent shooting (another season-low) from the field, jumped out to a quick 4-0 lead and never trailed in the game despite one tie early in the first half.

Michael Neal and Austin Johnson led the way with 11 points each, while Tony Crocker chipped in 10.

Oklahoma also recorded a season-best 10 blocked shots and outrebounded Tulsa 37-31. Longar Longar, Taylor Griffin and Johnson blocked three shots apiece. Griffin added a game-high eight rebounds.

Johnson also played a tremendous floor game with four assists and only one turnover. Overall, OU turned the ball over 19 times as a team.

With the win, the Sooners improved to 50-12 all-time in the All-College and 26-10 against the Hurricane.

OU will return to the court on Dec. 28 for a 7 p.m. tip-off against SMU at the Lloyd Noble Center.
