Overall team performance—A
Not many people saw this one coming. The Sooners dominated the first half, as they surged out to an 18-point halftime lead.

He also tossed four assists and grabbed five rebounds despite turning it over four times.
In 26 minutes, he wasn't much of a factor, scoring only six points on 2-for-7 shooting. Crocker did have two rebounds, two assists and a steal, but he also committed two turnovers.
