The Sooners raced to an early lead and stayed ahead all the way but Iowa State came within one or two points of tying up the game four times in the last period. The Cyclones narrowed Oklahoma's lead to 58-56 with five minutes left, 62-60 with about four minutes left, 71-69 with 50 seconds left and 72-71 with 26 seconds left. Oklahoma's nerveless Bob Waller and Lynn Hart sank two free throws each to clinch the game. A desperation shot by Iowa State's Howie Johnson from the side in the last second dropped through to no avail. The Sooners held substantial leads at all period stops, 25-13 37-30 and 56-45. Lcs Lane at guard hit 23 points for the winners followed by Waller's 19 and Hart's 13. Iowa State's scoring was led by Johnson at guard with 20, center Chuck Dun can with 12 and guard Dutch Van Cleave with 10. Duncan fouled oui in the third period. v .
