Records: No. 8 Texas Tech 14-2 overall, 3-1 in the Big 12; No. 9 Oklahoma 13-2, 3-1. Since, he has played an average of 15 minutes over the last three games, including a season-high 21 minutes, most by any Sooner bench player, in Tuesday's 75-65 home win over No. 8 Texas Tech.

The nation's scoring and assists leader torched the Red Raiders for 22 points in the second half after shooting 1-for-12 over the first 20 minutes. Lattin became only the fourth player in OU history to reach 200 blocks in a career, and he also had 11 points and eight rebounds. He drained 6 of 11 in the second to help the Sooners bounce back from a loss to No. 2 West Virginia on Saturday.

Texas Tech (14-1, 3-0 Big 12) vaulted 10 spots in Monday's poll, earning its highest ranking since being a program-best No. 7 in March 1996.

Much of that was due to several players, including Evans, Niem Stevenson, Justin Gray, Jarrett Culver and Zhaire Smith, putting a body and making driving lanes more hard for Young in the first 20 minutes. "We put him on the free-throw line and kind of let him get going".

The Sooners shot 56 percent from the floor in the second half.

"We were just trying to make it tough any way possible", Tech guard Keenan Evans said about the defense on Young. Young, who averages three treys per game, did not make his first three-point shot until almost three minutes into the second half. In the second, Young shot 6-11 for 22 points as Oklahoma won the second half by 12 points.

Texas Tech may have played its worst first half, committing 11 turnovers, yet found a way to bounce back and fend off several Sooners offensive runs thanks to playing with energy on the defensive end.

Young hit his first three-pointer almost three minutes into the second half to give the Sooners a 36-31 lead.

Frank Howard scored 18 points to lead the Orange (12-5, 1-3).

Doolittle tallied four points, three rebounds, an assist and a steal and had a plus-16 net rating for the game. Wesley Myers scored 15 points to lead SC (10-6, 1-3).

Oklahoma hit six in the second half - four by Young. Vanderbilt couldn't handle the 6-7, 241-pound Williams around the basket. The Bulldogs (12-6, 2-3) lost their third consecutive since upsetting then-No.
