A dominant Blake Griffin had 28 points and 13 rebounds and survived an ugly incident that got another player ejected Thursday night as Oklahoma rolled past Morgan State 82-54 in the first round of South Regional Thursday night.

Griffin missed most of two games because of a concussion he sustained on Feb. 21. The second-seeded Sooners lost those two games and stumbled into the NCAA tournament.

The player of the year favorite took another hard tumble when Morgan State's Ameer Ali flipped him over his back and on to the court in the second half after the two became entangled.

Ali was immediately ejected.

Griffin stayed in the game and finished 11 of 12 from the field.

Oklahoma (28-5), which had lost four of its last six, was never threatened by the No. 15 Bears (23-12), who were making their first NCAA appearance.
