By  | 

NORMAN, OK -- Blake Griffin racked up his 14th double-double with 20 points and 10 rebounds to lead No. 6 Oklahoma to a 76-63 victory over No. 11 Texas on Monday night, snapping a six-game losing streak to the Longhorns.

Willie Warren scored 17 points and Tony Crocker added 16 points
and nine rebounds as the Sooners (16-1, 2-0 Big 12) built a big
lead early and then thwarted a second-half rally.

Damion James brought Texas (12-4, 1-1) within 54-50 with a
3-pointer from the right wing with 11:13 to play, but the Longhorns
then went 6½ minutes without scoring.

Warren's driving layup started a 12-0 run for the Sooners, and
Taylor Griffin's two free throws pushed the lead to 66-50 with 5:05
remaining.

A.J. Abrams led Texas with 22 points on 8-for-26 shooting, and
James scored 12.
