Overall team performance—F
The start was too good to be true. OU led the first 10 minutes of the game, as they built up a 20-11 lead, and after the Bears stormed back, OU never led again. Baylor managed to take a 15-point lead into the half, and they poured it on from there, ultimately winning by 31. The Bears outshot the Sooners 58.6 percent to 35.7 percent. They hit 10 threes to OU's five, and they won the rebounding battle 38 to 26. As a team, OU was dominated in every phase of the game.
On the bright side,
Crocker hit three trifectas, part of his 6-for-14 shooting performance en route to 16 points. He also had a very good assist-turnover ratio at five to one. But he had some defensive lapses, wasn't effective on the boards, and quite frankly, at times he took some questionable shots.
After a good outing against
Fitzgerald played 28 minutes, and what did he do with it? He was 1-for-2 from the field and 2-for-4 from the free throw line for a total of four points and finished with only two rebounds. The answer to that question, then, is he didn't do much with his 28 minutes of playing time. His only field goal was one that put OU up 20-11 at the time, and he didn't do anything else from that point on.
Gallon had the most respectable performance. And ultimately it was his exit from the game that turned things around for good. After he picked up his second foul, Baylor stormed back and took the lead. But when he was in the game, he was effective. He finished 6-for-11 for 17 points with five boards.
The bench play, for lack of a better word, was pathetic. Six people came off the bench, and excluding the two that came in for the final minute, they combined to be 4-for-16 for 11 points. They had three of the team's 11 turnovers and didn't provide any lift for the starters.
