A view of how close students get to the action when opposing teams in-bound the ball in Cameron Indoor Stadium

Myron Medcalf ESPN Staff Writer 

In Saturday's loss, Oklahoma recorded 42 percent of its offensive production from 3-pointers. The Sooners entered last weekend's loss at Kansas State with 39 percent of their offense coming from 3s overall. That's understandable for a team that entered Saturday's game leading the nation at 45.1 percent from beyond the arc. But when they struggle (31 percent on Saturday), it can become a problem.
