MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - Romero Osby and Steven Pledger scored in double figures for Oklahoma to negate an outstanding day by West Virginia freshman Terry Henderson Saturday as the Mountaineers lost their inaugural Big 12 game 67-57.

Osby had 21 points and nine rebounds and Pledger added 12 as the Sooners (10-3) beat the Mountaineers (7-6) for the second time this year. The two league opponents met in a nonconference game in a Thanksgiving tournament which did not count against the standings.

Oklahoma closed the game on a 16-2 run that included two treys from Pledger.

Henderson, who previously scored 23 points in a loss to Michigan, notched 21 points Saturday, including six 3-pointers, all in the first half.

Two other Mountaineers finished in double figures - Jabarie Hinds (11) and Juwan Staten (10).

West Virginia scored nine 3s in the first half, but knocked down only seven field goals after intermission.
