WACO, Texas -

It was a hard-fought matchup for the majority of the game, but the No. 13 Baylor Bears pulled away late, dropping the Sooners 70-60 Saturday, sending the Sooners to their 12th conference loss of the year.

Oklahoma led by seven in the first half, but the Bears were too much for the Sooners and managed to tie the game, but a Steven Pledger three-point play with five seconds left to play gave Oklahoma a 34-31 lead at halftime.

The first 10 minutes of the second half were just as close as the first half, with the game tied 46-46 with 11 minutes left on the clock. But that's the point where the Bears put together their big run to put the game away.

Baylor snapped off a 12-2 run over the next five minutes, capped off by back-to-back three pointers from Brady Heslip, to take a 59-48 advantage with 5:48 left on the clock. At that point, Baylor just matched Oklahoma point-for-point to lock up the win.

Pierre Jackson Set the pace for the Bears, scoring 18 points and grabbing three rebounds, despite turning the ball over five times. Heslip was big for the Bears as well, scoring 16, while Quincy Miller added 12 points and grabbing nine rebounds.

Steven Pledger finished with a game-high 21 points, grabbing four rebounds and two assists, but didn't get much help elsewhere. Romero Osby and Cameron Clarke both chipped in 12 points, but Osby turned the ball over five times.

The Sooners will try to avoid a back-to-back losses Wednesday, taking on the Texas Longhorns at 8 p.m. in Austin.
