Young Shines Again As Sooners Roll Ball State

Posted: Updated:
Norman -

Freshman guard Trae Young had 22 points and 13 assists for his second double-double in as many games and Oklahoma rolled past Ball State 108-69 on Wednesday night.

Young, named the Big 12 Conference's player of the week after a 15-point, 10-assist outing in a season-opening win over Omaha on Sunday, went 5 of 10 from 3-point range against Ball State while playing only 26 minutes.

Four Sooners scored in double figures, including Khadeem Lattin (20 points), Brady Manek (16) and Christian James (13). Oklahoma scored in triple digits for only the sixth time in coach Lon Kruger's seven seasons with the Sooners - but for the second time in as many games.

Jontrell Walker led Ball State (0-2) with 23 points while Kyle Mallers had 17. Unlike in a one-point loss at Dayton in the season opener -- when the Cardinals lost in the final second - Ball State never was in the game against Oklahoma (2-0).

The Sooners shot 56.8 percent from the field and never trailed, jumping to a 16-3 lead in the first four minutes of the game as James, Young, Manek and Young again hit 3-pointers during that span. The Sooners led 60-31 at halftime after Young's fourth 3-pointer and were up by as many as 41 points in the second half.

The game served as the on-campus portion of the Nike-sponsored PK80 tournament for Oklahoma.

The Sooners are off until a Nov. 23 game vs. Arkansas in Portland, Oregon, as part of the PK80 tournament, then will face North Carolina or Portland on Nov. 24 and either Oregon, DePaul, Connecticut or Michigan State on Nov. 26.
