    Oklahoma's most lopsided win in 10 seasons

    NORMAN, Okla. (AP) -- Tuning up for a big game, Oklahoma (No. 12 ESPN/USA Today; NO. 14 AP) overwhelmed Arkansas-Pine Bluff 94-24 Tuesday night in coach Kelvin Sampson's most lopsided win in 10 seasons with the Sooners.

    The Sooners (4-0) didn't have to break much of a sweat while preparing for Saturday's showdown at No. 5 Michigan State. The 24 points were the fewest by an Oklahoma opponent in 60 years.

    Oklahoma led 48-9 at halftime. When UAPB's Jamaal Bibles hit a 3-pointer early in the second half that put his team into double-digits, the crowd cheered wildly for the overmatched Golden Lions.

    De'Angelo Alexander scored 19 points for the Sooners. Kevin Bookout had 14, Jason Detrick 13 and Jabahri Brown 12.

    The Sooners limited the Golden Lions (0-4) to just nine field goals and 21 percent shooting.

    Arkansas-Pine Bluff is playing 11 of its first 12 games on the road, and has now lost its first four games by an average of 38 points.

    Going into halftime, the Golden Lions had almost twice as many turnovers (23) as shot attempts (13). At one point in the first half, the Golden Lions went more than five minutes without even getting off a shot.

    Oklahoma forced Arkansas-Pine Bluff into 41 turnovers on 26 steals.

    No one from Arkansas-Pine Bluff scored in double figures. The leading scorer was Billy Hall, who scored six points. Three other players had four points.

    The only person who didn't get into the game for the Sooners was walk-on freshman guard Kellen Sampson, the coach's son who is redshirting this season.
