Blake Griffin set new career-highs with 40 points and 23 rebounds to break a school record with his 22nd double-double of the season, and No. 2 Oklahoma throttled Texas Tech 95-74 Saturday for its 13th straight win.
Griffin became only the third player in Oklahoma history to record at least 40 points and 20 rebounds in a game, joining Wayman Tisdale and Alvan Adams. Those two have their jersey numbers hanging in the rafters at the Lloyd Noble Center.
Griffin threw down a pair of two-handed jams off lobs during a 10-0 run that put the Sooners (25-1, 11-0 Big 12) ahead 61-41 in the second half. And he wasn't done.
He added a few more pirouetting layups under the basket and finished his scoring with a two-handed jam that resulted in a three-point play.
Nick Okorie scored a career-high 24 points to lead Texas Tech (12-13, 2-8) in its 11th straight road loss.
