AP Sports Writer

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - Buddy Hield's 3-pointer from the corner with 1.3 seconds remaining lifted No. 3 Oklahoma to a 63-60 victory over No. 24 Texas on Monday night.

Hield struggled early, but scored 12 points in the final 3:11. He scored 21 of his 27 points in the second half.

Isaiah Cousins added 17 points for the Sooners (20-3, 8-3 Big 12), who trailed for most of the game. Oklahoma bounced back from a loss at Kansas State on Saturday that cost it the No. 1 ranking. The Sooners beat the Longhorns for the sixth straight time and increased their home winning streak to 19 games.

Isaiah Taylor scored 19 points and Kendal Yancy added a season-high 13 points for Texas (16-8, 7-4), which had won four straight and seven of eight. The Longhorns entered the Top 25 for the first time this season earlier Monday.
