NORMAN, Okla. (AP) – Freshman Kristian Doolittle scored 17 points to help Oklahoma defeat Northern Colorado 87-66 on Tuesday night.

Jordan Woodard had 14 points and nine rebounds and Christian James added 14 points and seven rebounds for the Sooners (5-1), who shot 54 percent from the field.

Jordan Davis had 15 points and seven assists, DJ Miles scored 11 points and Chaz Glotta added 10 points for Northern Colorado (2-5).

Oklahoma led 40-34 at halftime behind seven points, six rebounds and four assists from Woodard. Northern Colorado scored the first five points of the second half to cut Oklahoma’s lead to 40-39, but the Sooners finally got things going. A technical foul against Northern Colorado coach Jeff Linder helped spark the Sooners to a 10-point lead with about nine minutes to play. Woodard sent the fans to the exits when he made a circus layup and was fouled to put the Sooners up 79-61 with about three minutes to go.
