NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - Cameron Clark posted 22 points and eight rebounds as Oklahoma defeated Arkansas-Little Rock 101-81 Friday at Lloyd Noble Center.

Oklahoma held a 23-point lead before Will Neighbour helped the Trojans cut the deficit to 11 by scoring in the paint and going to the free throw line.

But the Sooners had a response each time. Whether it was a Jordan Woodard 3-pointer or a fast break layup off a turnover, OU was back up by 17 at the 7 minute mark in the second half.

That would be as close as UALR would get the rest of the game as Oklahoma cruised down the stretch.

Clark shot 8 for 18 from the field, including four 3-pointers to lead the Sooners (5-1). Jordan Woodard added 16.

The Trojans (2-4) were paced by Neighbour, who had 16 points. Josh Hagins chipped in with 12.
