 NORMAN, Okla. (AP) -Freshman forward Blake Griffin scored a career-high 26 points as Oklahoma won its fifth straight game, rolling past Mount St. Mary's 81-57.
Griffin went 7 of 10 from the field and 12 of 18 from the free-throw line against the smaller Mountaineers as Oklahoma (12-3) matched its highest non-conference win total in nine years. The Sooners' winning streak is their longest during coach Jeff Capel's two seasons at the helm.
The Sooners shot 53.2 percent from the field, went 6 of 12 from 3-point range and forced 19 turnovers by the Mountaineers.
The game was tied 28-28 when the Sooners went on a 13-0 run spanning the halves. The Sooners led 36-28 at halftime, thanks to consecutive 3-pointers by senior David Godbold. Oklahoma scored the five points in the opening minute of the second half, as Griffin then teamed with his older brother, Taylor Griffin.
Mount St. Mary's (7-8) came no closer than 11 points the rest of the way. The Mountaineers have lost four of their last five games.
Oklahoma led by as many as 32 points in the second half, before Mount St. Mary's closed the game with eight straight points.
The Sooners went 25 of 39 from the free-throw line, compared to 3 of 7 for the Mountaineers. Mount St. Mary's was called for 27 personal fouls and three technical fouls.
Longar Longar added 11 points and Tony Crocker 10 points for Oklahoma, which was one spot outside The Associated Press Top 25 released Monday.
Jeremy Goode had 12 points and Will Holland scored 11 for Mount St. Mary's.
Oklahoma will open Big 12 Conference play on Saturday at home against Kansas State.
