NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - Buddy Hield’s 3-pointer from the corner with 1.3 seconds remaining lifted No. 3 Oklahoma to a 63-60 victory over No. 24 Texas on Monday night.

Hield scored 21 of his 27 points in the second half, 12 points in the final 3:11.

Isaiah Cousins added 17 points for the Sooners (20-3, 8-3 Big 12), who trailed for most of the game. Oklahoma bounced back from a loss at Kansas State on Saturday that cost it the No. 1 ranking. The Sooners beat the Longhorns for the sixth straight time and increased their home winning streak to 19 games.

Isaiah Taylor scored 19 points and Kendal Yancy added a season-high 13 points for Texas (16-8, 7-4), which had won four straight and seven of eight. The Longhorns entered the Top 25 for the first time this season earlier Monday.

Both teams shot 40 percent from the field, but the Sooners outscored the Longhorns 14-6 from the free throw line.

Donovan Mitchell scored 17 points and Quentin Snider, who fouled out with 2:01 left, added 12 for the Cardinals (19-5, 8-3), who shot 56 percent in the second half and erased a 15-point deficit but missed a chance to take sole possession of first place in the league.

Trey Lewis swished a 3-pointer with 24.5 seconds left to pull the Cardinals within five and Duke freshman Derryck Thornton missed two free throws with 22.5 seconds left, but Damion Lee missed a 3-pointer with about 10 seconds to play and Kennard iced it with two more free throws with 6.4 seconds left.
