Oklahoma tops Florida to start Battle 4 Atlantis

PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas (AP) - Christian James scored 18 points to help Oklahoma earn a matchup with Wisconsin in the semifinals.

Aaron Calixte hit two clinching free throws with 5.0 seconds left for the Sooners (4-0), who led by 11 in the first half and 63-54 with 3:38 left before holding off the Gators' late rally. And Oklahoma helped itself by taking a 48-34 rebounding advantage.

Reserve Dontay Bassett had 14 points for the Gators (2-2), who hit a season-high 11 3-pointers. But Gators had to work awfully hard to find any offensive flow and made 3 of 11 free throws.

''I don't think we're a team with a bunch of swagger right now,'' Florida coach Mike White said. ''I think confidence is a big issue with this team right now. It's something that we've got to get to the bottom of.''

Florida will face Stanford in Thursday's consolation bracket.
