    ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Reserve Calvin Newell scored 18 points and Oklahoma pulled away in the second half to beat Washington State 74-59 on Thursday night in the 76 Classic.

    The Sooners will face Santa Clara in the semifinals Friday. Washington State will play New Mexico in the consolation round.

    Newell shot 7 of 13 and hit four 3-pointers, and Steven Pledger added 14 points on three 3s.

    The Sooners were stout defensively, forcing 22 turnovers and limiting the Cougars to 22 percent shooting in the second half.

    Marcus Capers heaved in a 60-foot shot that beat the halftime buzzer and gave Washington State a 40-38 lead.
