TULSA, Okla. (AP) -- Romero Osby's free throws with 2:58 remaining put Oklahoma ahead to stay and the Sooners rallied to beat Oral Roberts 63-62 Wednesday night.

Buddy Hield scored all 11 of his points in the second half to help the Sooners (5-1) come back from a 54-44 deficit in the final 9:07. Amath M'Baye led Oklahoma with 12 points and nine rebounds, and Osby finished with 11 points.

Warren Niles led the Golden Eagles (3-4) with 21 points and Shawn Glover added 17 points.

After Osby's two free throws made it 61-60 with 2:58 to play, Steven Pledger's driving basket increased the Sooners' lead to 63-60 at 1:12.

Steven Roundtree scored with 18 seconds left for ORU, but missed the free throw. Glover missed a shot with 1.4 seconds remaining and Osby got the rebound. He was fouled and missed both free throws but Oral Roberts' Niles missed from half-court as time expired.
