NORMAN, Oklahoma (Ticker) -- Eighth-ranked Oklahoma should have little trouble stretching its 26-game home winning streak on Saturday afternoon when it hosts Coppin State.

Oklahoma (4-1) has won four straight - all at home - after opening the season with a 68-62 loss to Alabama on November 14 in the Coaches vs. Cancer Classic. The Sooners cruised to a 92-52 rout of Hartford last Saturday in their last game.

Ebi Ere scored a career-high 33 points on 11-of-18 shooting and Hollis Price was 5-of-7 and finished with 17 points. Freshman Kevin Bookout also had a solid effort with 15 points.

The Sooners have won the first four games of this six-game homestand by more than 20 points per game.

Coppin State (1-5) is a small school from Baltimore in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference. The Eagles are playing the second game of five on the road after ending a five-game skid with a 73-59 victory over cross-town roval Morgan State last Saturday.

Jimmy Boykin scored 23 points and freshman Raheem Scott added 17 for Coppin State. Larry Tucker, the team's leading scorer at 13.2 points per game, added 10 points and played the entire game.

Oklahoma is 8-0 against Coppin State and 5-0 under coach Kelvin Sampson. The eight victories have been by an average of 24 points.
