The Sooners make it the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

Oklahoma (20-13, 7-11 Big 12) beat Ole Miss (20-13, 10-8 SEC), 95-72, with a flurry of offense Friday afternoon in Columbia, South Carolina. The Sooners will now face the winner of No. 1 seed Virginia and No. 16 seed Gardner-Webb.

It was a game of high offense for both teams, but OU's four players with double-digit scoring and 57 percent field-goal percentage were too much for the Rebels.

Senior forward Rashard Odomes stole the show with his 20 points while making four trips to the foul line — all of which were whistles after a made basket. Odomes finished the game 8-10 from the field.

Oklahoma's next game will be Sunday, with the time still to be determined.
