Oklahoma headed to Elite Eight after beating Texas A&M

-

The No. 2 Oklahoma Sooners are one step closer to the Final Four after destroying the No. 3 Texas A&M Aggies in the Sweet Sixteen by a score of 77-63. Jordan Woodard led the Sooners with 22 points as star 2-guard Buddy Hield went into playmaker mode, chipping in 16 points with 10 rebounds and three assists.

Oklahoma was in perfect sync tonight, shooting 49 percent from the field and 44 percent from long range in spite of 15 turnovers. With an offense this strong, it’s going to be tough to count out the Sooners not only as a Final Four contender, but as one to win the national title.

Texas A&M, on the other hand, just couldn’t do anything right after its epic double-overtime victory over Northern Iowa last weekend. The Aggies shot just 34 percent from the field and 21 percent from downtown, not to mention 54 percent from the free-throw line. Team leader Danuel House was limited to 10 points on 4 of 13 shooting, and Oklahoma was simply the better team.

Next for the Sooners is the Elite Eight, where they will face the winner of tonight’s late matchup between No. 4 Duke and No. 1 Oregon. Stay tuned to Campus Sports for further updates from the NCAA Tournament!
