Willie Warren – B

Despite scoring a season high of 24 points, Warren had 5 turnovers and struggled keeping his man off the boards.

Warren matched career highs with 11 made free throws and 13 attempts from the charity stripe (.846). Through two games, Warren is 18-of-21 (.857) from the line, averaging 10.5 free throw attempts.

Tony Crocker – B

Crocker also had a season high with 13 points and played some excellent defense.

Tommy Mason-Griffin – B-

Mason-Griffin pushed the tempo at times, but Coach Capel would still like to see him push the action even more at times. Missed some key block-outs.

Keith Gallon – C

Gallon's play was limited due to foul trouble but he managed to rack up 10 rebounds.

Ryan Wright – C

Wright had a couple of big slams, but still seems to be looking for his groove offensively. It would also be nice to see him find a niche as a rebounder.

Bench – B-

Three players got involved off the bench. Cade Davis may have been the story of the game as his spirited and passionate play helped pick OU up when they most desperately needed it. Steven Pledger also came up with some money shots again, despite playing limited minutes. Andrew Fitzgerald played sparingly.

All-in-all the bench accounted for 17 points and only five rebounds.

Crowd – F

The crowd was quite placid on Tuesday night. The biggest pop of the night before Wright's slam to end the first half was when the Ruffnecks came out on the court to throw out t-shirts. People that were there would probably agree that when the team needed an energy boost early in the game, there was no help to be found in the crowd.
