KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Buddy Hield scored 22 points, TaShawn Thomas added 17 points and 10 rebounds, and No. 15 Oklahoma used an early second-half run to beat Oklahoma State 64-49 on Thursday night in the quarterfinals of the Big 12 tournament.
Jordan Woodard added 11 points and Isaiah Cousins had 10 for the third-seeded Sooners (22-9), who beat the No. 6 seed Cowboys (18-13) for the seventh time in their last eight meetings.
Oklahoma advanced to play No. 13 Iowa State in the semifinals Friday night. The second-seeded Cyclones needed a buzzer-beater to beat Texas 69-67 in an earlier quarterfinal.
Le’Bryan Nash had 27 points and 12 rebounds for Oklahoma State, which may have needed a win or two in the Big 12 tournament to feel good about its chances on Selection Sunday.
