      Sooners Meaner Than North Texas

      NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - Oklahoma's Buddy Hield scored a career-high 23 points and four other Sooners finished in double figures to help Oklahoma beat North Texas 95-82 Monday.

      After scoring a career-high 19 points in an 82-73 season-opening win against Alabama on Friday, the sophomore Hield again led the Sooners (2-0) in 29 minutes of work.

      Tyler Neal added 12 points while Je'Lon Hornbeak, Ryan Spangler and Cameron Clark each had 11 for the Sooners.

      Alzee Williams led the Mean Green (1-1) with 24 points.

      After trailing the first 2:27, Oklahoma used an 8-0 run to take a 12-8 lead. Hield keyed a 9-0 run later in the half with a driving basket and then a three-pointer in transition to give the Sooners a 14-point lead - their largest of the game.

      The Sooners shot 53 percent from the floor, never trailing after the 15:41 mark to win their 21st consecutive home opener.
