Oklahoma 73, West Virginia 62

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - Kristian Doolittle scored 19 points two days after undergoing surgery to repair a broken nose and Oklahoma boosted its NCAA Tournament hopes with a 73-62 victory over No. 20 West Virginia.

Oklahoma (18-11, 8-8 Big 12) built a 21-point lead in the second half and cruised from there to complete a regular-season sweep of the reeling Mountaineers (19-10, 7-9).

Brady Manek added 15 points, Austin Reaves had 13 and Jamal Bieniemy 11 points for the Sooners. They broke a six-game road losing streak.

Miles McBride came off the bench to score 13 points for West Virginia, and Oscar Tshiebwe had nine points and 10 rebounds. The Mountaineers have lost six of seven.

Doolittle played in his third game wearing a mask since breaking his nose against Oklahoma State on Feb. 22.

He underwent surgery Thursday and didn't slow down against the Mountaineers, going 7 of 13 from the floor and matching a team high with seven rebounds.

West Virginia went scoreless over the final 5:43 of the first half and trailed 25-21 at the break.

Doolittle scored 14 points in the second half, making a free throw to give the Sooners their largest lead, 59-38, with 7:08 remaining.

West Virginia came alive with a 13-2 run but got no closer than eight points the rest of the game.
