Stephen Curry very impressed by Oklahoma's Trae Young

Oklahoma State attempted to play up-tempo with the nation's highest-scoring offense.

As great as it is to accomplish all of that, though, Young was far more thankful for Curry's compliments. This should be a comfortable win for OU before traveling halfway across the country to West Virginia Saturday in what could be a decisive game in the conference title race.

"I knew how good he was, but I didn't even realize he was this good", Calipari said.

The Wofford Terriers went 0-3, including one 34-point showcase by Curry, then a Davidson sophomore.

The Cowboys are seeking back-to-back wins in Norman for the first time since 1964 and 1965.

Not bad for the two state teams that were picked in the Big 12's lower tier-Oklahoma predicted to come in sixth place this year, while the Cowboys were chosen to finish dead last. "Coach called on me to make shots and that's what I did". Curry offered glowing praise of the freshman and noted he understood why the comparisons exist, but did stop short of endorsing those comparisons wholly. It was OU's 16th win over the Cowboys in the last 18 games played at the Lloyd Noble Center in Norman. "We can play smaller with him as a power forward, and still be able to play pretty seamlessly". I expect that to continue. "You can't get through this league playing with anything but maximum confidence and belief in your ability to get the job done". "We've got to learn from this one and get ready to move on to the next one".

Oklahoma played at its pace and used the first few minutes of the second half to build an insurmountable lead in Wednesday's Bedlam contest.

Yet the Sooners continued to answer, as freshman Brady Manek followed a Dziagwa trey with one of his own. He's on a string of four-straight double-doubles including Saturday's 39-point, 14-assist effort against No. 10 TCU. Young was a rebound shy of a triple-double. The Seminoles (12-2, 1-1 ACC) led most of the game but nearly squandered it as they didn't make a field goal in the last 2:57 and missed their last four free throws. "So now you've got to extend the floor and what he's done, they space the floor with good shooters".

Shine's night ended with 13:29 remaining in the game.

That has allowed Young to find open teammates when he's not shooting. The Sooners' 109 points is the most they have scored this season.

Boynton said several Cowboys will likely take turns guarding Young.
