NORMAN, Okla. (AP) -- Steven Pledger scored a game-high 17 points and Amath M'Baye had 14 points and six rebounds to lead Oklahoma past Texas A&M Corpus Christi 72-42 on Monday.

Pledger entered the contest shooting only 36 percent on 3-point attempts, but connected on 5 of 10 shots from beyond the arc to give the Sooners (9-3) an offensive spark in the first regular-season game played at OU's McCasland Field House in 38 years.

Oklahoma jumped out to an early 18-6 lead and never looked back en route to handing the Islanders their 10th straight loss, dating back to a season-opening win over Texas Lutheran on Nov. 11. Joy Williamson led Texas A&M-Corpus Christi with 14 points and five rebounds.

Oklahoma usually plays its home games in Lloyd Noble Center but played this contest at the 84-year-old venue as part of a historic field house series.
