The Ducks opened the game on a 7-0 run, forcing the Sooners into five early turnovers during that stretch.

The Sooners - who led by as many as 23 points on two occasions in the first half - took a 55-35 lead into the halftime locker room. Oklahoma shot 10-of-20 on 3-pointers in the first half. Delgado posted a team-best 11 first-half points for the Ducks, who were limited to 34.1 percent from the field and 20 percent on 3-pointers. Alleyne contributed eight points and 10 rebounds over the first 20 minutes.
