Oklahoma ends nonconference play with rout

NORMAN, Okla. -- Steven Pledger scored 19 points, Cade Davis added 11 points and a career-high 12 rebounds and Oklahoma finished nonconference play with a 73-49 victory against Maryland-Eastern Shore on Monday night.

The Sooners (8-6), who have won all eight of their home games and lost all six played elsewhere, start Big 12 play by hosting No. 16 Texas A&M on Saturday.

After allowing the Hawks (3-10) to wipe away a 15-point deficit and tie the game at 39, Oklahoma responded by scoring the next 14 points to reclaim control. Eastern Shore went 6 1/2 minutes without scoring while the Sooners pulled away.

Hillary Haley led Maryland-Eastern Shore with 17 points despite 6-for-18 shooting, and Kevin White scored 10.
