Texas A&M used another second-half surge led by Acie Law to once again take control of Oklahoma in the final minutes as they pulled out a 56-49 victory in Lloyd Noble Center.

It marked the first home defeat in Big 12 Conference play for the Sooners who have now fallen back to .500 in conference play at 6-6.

The Sooners shot poorly for most of the second half as Nate Carter couldn't get his shots on Saturday. Carter was 4-of-12 from the field and hit a meaningless three-point basket at the end of the contest which finally put him in double figures with 10 points.

Oklahoma's only consistent offense against A&M came from David Godbold who hit on 5-of-7 three point shots and led the Sooners with 20 points on the day.

The Sooners dominated the first half of play with their defense, but Law scored 17 of his game-high 21 points after the halftime break.
