KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Cade Davis scored 24 points and Oklahoma hit nine 3-pointers en route to an 84-67 victory over short-handed Baylor in the first round of the Big 12 tournament Wednesday.
A few hours before tipoff, Baylor's standout freshman, Perry Jones, was declared ineligible by the NCAA. The issue is whether he or his family received preferential treatment or improper benefits before he enrolled.
Carl Blair had 14 points and 11 assists and Clark Cameron had 10 points for 10th-seeded Oklahoma (14-17), which next faces second-seeded Texas. Quincy Acy had 21 points and Anthony Jones 13 for Baylor (18-13).
Baylor guard LaceDarius Dunn, the Big 12's all-time leading scorer, had foul trouble and scored just 11 points on 3-for-14 shooting. He extended his school record to 45 straight games with at least one 3-pointer but needs two more 3s to set the Big 12 record.
