Reaves 41 points, last FG for Oklahoma in 78-76 win at TCU
Sat Mar 7, 2020 9:56 PM

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) The final play was drawn up for Austin Reaves, and the Oklahoma guard made one more shot to give the Sooners a victory in the final half-second of the regular season.

Reaves scored 41 points, the most by a Big 12 player this season,

as the Sooners beat TCU 78-76 on Saturday after being down by as many as 19 points in the second half.

“I just had the confidence to make the shot,” said Reaves, who followed that by making several gestures when running toward the other end of the court, and at one point held both hands at his throat indicating a choking motion.

Reaves had 15 points in a 23-9 run by Oklahoma (19-12, 9-9 Big 12) over the last 5:02 of the game. He had a four-point play with 1:32 left.

The Sooners, who clinched the No. 3 seed for the Big 12 tournament instead of slipping to seventh, never led until Reaves made the last shot.

It was a bitter ending for TCU's senior day, and oh so similar to Oklahoma's regular-season home finale four nights earlier when Texas banked in a 3-pointer with .4 seconds left to beat the Sooners 52-51.

“We just lost one like that,” Oklahoma coach Lon Kruger said. “So I feel so for coach (Jamie) Dixon and how great their guys were playing, and then we've got to to sneak it out there at the end. But I really do have mixed emotions about not, not being as excited as I would like to be because I know how painful that is."

Kristian Doolittle, the only Oklahoma senior, had 15 points and 11 rebounds.

TCU senior

while becoming the school's outright career leader in 3-pointers. The Frogs (16-15, 7-11) led 67-55 when he made the last of his four 3s with 5:17 left.

“We definitely had a little bit of mental loss and focus. We gave them life in the second half,” Bane said.

Reaves was 12 of 23 from the field, and was 15 of 16 at the free throw line. His 31 points in a win over TCU on Jan. 18 were previously the most by a Big 12 player this season.

“Give Reaves credit, he made shots, he made plays, he got to the foul line over and over again,” Dixon said. “I was disappointed we fouled him in situations that shouldn’t have been fouled in. That’s the problem. We’ve got to get smarter.“

Brady Manek, who came in averaging nearly 15 points a game for Oklahoma, was 0-for-5 shooting and scoreless until he hit a 3 with 1:58 to go. He made another one a minute later to tie the game.

“Big time. I mean, that's the type of player he is. He makes big shots,” Reaves said. “We tell him every time, keep shooting and we believe in you. He's one of the best shooters I've ever been around. So let it fly."

Jaire Grayer, another TCU senior, scored the game's first five points and finished with 18. Kevin Samuel and PJ Nembhard both had 12.

BANE'S QUICK START

Bane had 10 points, including two 3s in the first 6:07 of the game, and 19 points by halftime. He was already tied for TCU's career record for 3-pointers at 243 before Saturday.

BIG PICTURE

Oklahoma: The Sooners, coming off a tough one-point home loss to Texas, rebounded with their third win in four games. That likely will lock up the Sooners' seventh NCAA Tournament appearance in eight years, though another win in the Big 12 tournament would provide another boost and help their seeding.

TCU: The Horned Frogs would have to win the Big 12 tournament to get into the NCAA Tournament. They may even need a win or two to get into the NIT for the third time in four years.

UP NEXT

The Big 12 tournament, where TCU plays Wednesday against Kansas State. Oklahoma will play West Virginia in the quarterfinals Thursday.
