Trae Young went 0-9 from three-point range in Oklahoma’s seventh consecutive road loss.
The No. 23 Oklahoma Sooners had a tough task ahead of themselves tonight, and the No. 7 Texas Tech Red Raiders proved to be too much. Oklahoma was dealt an 88-78 loss, which is it’s seventh consecutive road loss and fourth straight loss overall. The loss dropped Oklahoma to 6-7 in Big 12 play and 16-9 overall.
Trae Young struggled from three-point range in yet another road game, going 0-9 from beyond the arc. He definitely did some nice things as a facilitator in the early going, but Texas Tech’s elite defensive prowess played a roll in keeping OU from finding any kind of offensive rhythm.
Christian James had a very strong performance for the Sooners, going 8-14 from the field and connecting on 4-8 three-point attempts, totaling a career-high 23 points. James has been one of the lone bright spots for this as of late even when he isn’t hitting his shots. It would be nice to see his teammates match his energy, but it just isn’t happening.
