The Oklahoma Sooners extended their win streak to four games in defeating the Baylor Bears 73-66 Wednesday afternoon in Norman. The Sooners held off a ferocious Bear attack at the end of the game to secure the win.
Baylor was down 13 with 4:43 remaining in the game, but cut the lead to three with 24 seconds remaining. Two Carl Blair free throws and a LaceDarius Dunn turnover helped seal the deal for the Sooners.
The game was originally to be played on Tuesday but was postponed a day because of the winter storm affecting most of the United States.
Oklahoma began the Big 12 conference season by dropping their first three, but have now crossed the .500 barrier, settling in at 4-3 in conference and 12-9 overall.

Clark and Cade Davis led OU with seven boards.
Baylor has dropped to 4-4 in conference and 14-7 overall. The Bears had four players in double figures, led by Perry Jones III's 19. Anthony Jones, Dunn and Quincy Acy each scored over 10 in the loss.
