Sooners hold off TCU for senior day win

Freshman Kameron McGusty tied his career high 22 with points to lead Oklahoma to a 73-68 victory over TCU in the Big 12 conference finale on Saturday.

McGusty gave the Sooners (11-19, 5-13) a 66-63 lead on a driving layup with 1:12 remaining and then watched TCU's Kenrich Williams tie the game with a 3-point shot on the Frogs next possession. McGusty and fellow freshmen Kameron Doolittle and Jordan Shepherd then connected on seven straight free throws to seal the game as the Horned Frogs missed three of their last four shots.

Oklahoma has a 10-0 record against TCU in Norman and has won 11 of the last 13 meetings overall. Doolittle added 19 points and 13 rebounds for the Sooners, while center Khadeem Lattin had seven points, 10 rebounds and five blocked shots.

TCU (17-14, 6-12) lost for the seventh straight time. Williams and Vladamir Brodziansky scored 17 points apiece, with Williams adding 13 boards. The Horned Frogs went 4 of 9 the foul line while the Sooners were 17 of 22.


TCU: The loss likely ended any remaining hopes the Horned Frogs had for an NCAA berth.

Oklahoma: The Sooners avoided their 20th loss of the season and avoided finishing in the cellar of the Big 12.

UP NEXT: It will be a rematch between these two teams Wednesday night in the opening round of the Big 12 Tournament in Kansas City.
