Buddy Hield and No. 1 Oklahoma hold off Ben Simmons and LSU, 77-75

Buddy Hield made seven of eight three-point attempts in the second half on his way to a 32-point performance, Isaiah Cousins hit a go-ahead jumper with four seconds left and No. 1 Oklahoma overcame a 14-point deficit to escape with a 77-75 victory over Louisiana State on Saturday at Baton Rouge, La.

Cousins finished with 18 points, and Ryan Spangler had 16 points and 10 rebounds for the Sooners (18-2), who summoned the composure to rally down the stretch amid a rabid, packed crowd energized by the Tigers' strong play for much of the game.

LSU didn't go quietly. Antonio Blakeney hit a pair of late threes, and the second tied it at 75 with 24 seconds left.
