NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - Alex Hamilton scored 10 of his game-high 31 points in overtime as Louisiana Tech snapped Oklahoma's seven-game winning streak with a 102-98 win at Lloyd Noble Center on Monday night.

Louisiana Tech trailed by as many as four points in overtime before four quick points from Hamilton put the Bulldogs back in the game. Raheem Appleby made two free throws with 39 seconds left to give Louisiana Tech (11-3) the lead for good.

Oklahoma had two chances to tie the game in the final minute. First, Jordan Woodard missed a running jumper with less than 25 seconds left that was grabbed by Louisiana Tech's Isaiah Massey. Then Cameron Clark lost control of the ball as he was going up for a jumper with less than 10 seconds remaining and Hamilton hit both free throws after being fouled to put the game away.

Louisiana Tech seemingly had the game sealed in regulation after Woodard's missed 3-pointer with less than four seconds remaining. But Clark scooped up the rebound, sprinted behind the 3-point line in the corner, turned and fired in a 3-pointer at the buzzer to send the game to overtime.

Just moments earlier, Clark had a chance to tie the game at the free-throw line before missing the first of two. Clark led Oklahoma with 26 points. Ryan Spangler added 20 points and 13 rebounds.

Appleby scored 22 and Cordarius Johnson 17 for the Bulldogs.

Louisiana Tech wraps up its non-conference schedule at home Saturday against Longwood. Oklahoma (11-2) opens Big 12 play Saturday at Texas.

The Sooners lead hovered around double digits for much of the first half.

Oklahoma led by 14 points after freshman walk-on Austin Mankin hit a 3-pointer with 4:18 remaining in the first half.

But the Bulldogs closed the half with a 16-2 run that included three 3-pointers, two by Johnson.

Louisiana Tech hit six 3-pointers before the break but struggled for most of the second half, including missing its first nine 3-point attempts.

After the Sooners stretched the lead back to seven, the Bulldogs chipped away and then took their first lasting lead of the game on resurgent 3-point shooting. The Bulldogs made three consecutive shots from behind the arc to go up five.

The Sooners had only trailed for just more than three minutes during their winning streak going into the game.
