Bedlam basketball: Oklahoma turns away Oklahoma State 109-89

Oklahoma guard Trae Young (11) celebrates after the 90-89 win over TCU in an NCAA college basketball game, Saturday, Dec. 30, 2017.

"Coach (Lon Kruger) kind of got mad at me for getting that tech, but I wanted to get the juices flowing in the crowd", Young said.

Oklahoma took a 50-42 lead into halftime and gradually stretched their lead to 25 points late in the second half.

During a one-minute stretch that started with a jumper with 17:26 remaining that put the Sooners up 13, Young scored eight consecutive points. You want to be the team that runs the state.

Young, the nation's leader in scoring and assists, finished with 27 points, 10 assists and nine rebounds.

Young didn't score much early but got his teammates involved - hitting Rashard Odomes for an assist on a dunk and Brady Manek for a helper on a 3-pointer, both coming less than 80 seconds into the game.

That technical counted as a personal against Shine and was part of why he fouled out.
