James had a team-high 20 points (7-17 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT) and added seven rebounds and an assist in losing effort against Texas on Saturday.
After winning 11 of 12 games during the non-conference portion of the schedule, the Sooners have now dropped four of their last six in conference play. James is the clear leader for this team, averaging 17.2 points and 7.6 rebounds per game, both of which are tops on the Sooners. His shooting has dropped off, however. Over the first 11 games James shot over 50 percent from the field, but over his last seven contest the senior is shooting just 34 percent. Oklahoma will be on the road in Stillwater to take on Oklahoma State on Wednesday.
