Hield’s tip-in gives No. 15 Oklahoma win over No. 9 Kansas
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Buddy Hield scored on a tip-in with 0.2 seconds left to give No. 15 Oklahoma a 75-73 victory over No. 9 Kansas on Saturday.
Hield got up high and got both hands on Jordan Woodard’s missed layup. Hield finished with 18 points and seven rebounds to help the Sooners (21-9, 12-6 Big 12) clinched at least a tie for second in the conference.
Isaiah Cousins added 16 points, TaShawn Thomas had 13, and Ryan Spangler finished with nine points and 11 rebounds for Oklahoma.
Frank Mason III tied a season high with 21 points for Kansas (24-7, 13-5).
Kansas scoring leader Perry Ellis sat out after spraining his right knee against West Virginia on Tuesday night. A Kansas spokesman said Brannen Greene was suspended for irresponsible behavior, and forward Cliff Alexander didn’t make the trip because if an ongoing NCAA investigation.
