Oklahoma vs Texas

Texas 72, Oklahoma 64


AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Freshman Sheldon McClellan scored a career-high 24 points and Texas rallied to a 72-64 win over Oklahoma on Wednesday night, avoiding what could have been a devastating blow to the Longhorns' NCAA tournament hopes.

McClellan's 3-pointer gave Texas (19-11, 9-8) its first lead, 59-58, with about six minutes left. He had a dunk in an 8-0 Texas burst in the final three minutes that opened a comfortable lead.

The win guarantees Texas will finish at least .500 in the Big 12, a critical mark for a team hoping to make its 14th consecutive tournament appearance. Texas closes the regular season Saturday at No. 3 Kansas.

Texas has won six in a row over Oklahoma (14-14, 4-13) and 13 of the last 15 meetings.

Romero Osby led Oklahoma with 14 points.
