WACO, Texas -- Blake Griffin could only smile when he turned to run down the court after his deflected shot still fell through the hoop.Austin Johnson knows his buzzer-beating 3-pointer was lucky.A couple of lucky shots, another double-double by Griffin and an earlier game-changing run of 3s by Johnson pushed second-ranked Oklahoma to a 78-63 victory over Baylor on Wednesday night and stretched the Sooners' winning streak to 12 games.
• Another game, another double-double for Blake Griffin (18 points, 10 rebounds) as the Sooners extended their win streak over Baylor to 30 straight (dates back to December 1977). That's the longest active win streak against a conference opponent in D-I.
• It was Griffin's 21st double-double of the season, tying Alvan Adams ('73-74) and Gar Heard ('69-70) for the most in a season in Oklahoma history.
• OU picked up their 24th win, surpassing their total from last season. Their 10-0 Big 12 start is their best in league play since beginning 11-0 in the Big Eight in 1985.
