NORMAN, Okla. - Umoja Gibson scored 20 points, and Oklahoma rallied in the second half to defeat No. 11 Iowa State 79-66.

Tanner Groves scored 16 points and Elijah Harkless added 13 for the Sooners (12-3, 2-1 Big 12), who took control with a 14-0 run spanning five minutes late in the second half.

Oklahoma bounced back from a loss to No. 1 Baylor with a dynamic offensive performance. The Sooners shot 62% from the field overall and 82% in the second half. It was Oklahoma's third win over a ranked team this season under first-year coach Porter Moser.

Izaiah Brockington and Tyrese Hunter each scored 20 points for Iowa State (13-2, 1-2).

Jacob Groves banked in a 3-pointer to give the Sooners a 21-16 lead midway through the first half, but Iowa State took control until the break. Brockington scored 16 points on 7-for-8 shooting to help the Cyclones take a 36-32 lead at halftime.

Iowa State opened the second half on a 7-2 run, highlighted by a 3-pointer by Hunter, to take a 43-34 lead.

Later in the half, Iowa State's Aljaz Kunc was called for a technical, and Oklahoma's Umoja Gibson made the free throw to tie the score at 59.

Oklahoma finally took the lead on a basket by Jacob Groves on another dazzling pass by Cortes. A turnaround jumper by Cortes pushed Oklahoma's advantage to 65-61. Cortes then spun, left a Cyclone defender on the ground and scored a layup to put Oklahoma up by 10.
