Hield, Cousins help No. 1 Oklahoma hold off LSU, 77-75

Ponca City Now - February 1, 2016 10:32 am

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) – Buddy Hield made seven of his eight 3-pointers in the second half on his way to a 32-point performance, Isaiah Cousins hit a go-ahead jumper with 4 seconds left and No. 1 Oklahoma overcame a 14-point deficit to escape with a 77-75 victory over LSU on Saturday.

Cousins finished with 18 points and Ryan Spangler scored 16 for the Sooners (18-2), who summoned the composure to rally amid a rabid, packed crowd energized by the Tigers’ strong play for much of the game.

LSU didn’t go quietly. Antonio Blakeney hit a pair of late 3s, and the second tied it at 75 with 24 seconds left.

Ben Simmons had 14 points for LSU (13-8), including a crowd-pleasing reverse, two-handed dunk. But those same fans were left frustrated, some hurling garbage, when Khadeem Lattin blocked Tim Quarterman to end it.

Quarterman had 18 points.
