MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Romero Osby had 21 points and nine rebounds for Oklahoma to negate an outstanding day by West Virginia freshman Terry Henderson Saturday as the Mountaineers lost their inaugural Big 12 game, 67-57.

The Sooners (10-3, 1-0) closed the game on a 16-2 run to beat the Mountaineers (7-6, 0-1) for the second time this season. The two league opponents met in a nonconference game in a Thanksgiving tournament.

Henderson, who previously scored 23 points in a loss to Michigan, notched 21 points Saturday, including seven 3-pointers, all in the first half.

Two other Mountaineers finished in double figures — Jabarie Hinds (11) and Juwan Staten (10).

West Virginia scored nine 3s in the first half but knocked down only seven field goals after intermission.

The Mountaineers were up 43-31 early in the second half, but the Sooners dominated from there. Trailing by 12 points, the Sooners held WVU to two field goals over the next 9½ minutes.
