OU notes: Sooners shut down Northwestern 3s, Brady Manek hits first free throws

NORMAN — Oklahoma started the season struggling to slow opponents from behind the 3-point arc.

In its only loss, to Arkansas in the PK80 tournament in Portland, Oregon, this was a deciding factor as the Razorbacks shot 9 for 18 from 3 to pull out the 92-83 decision. Over the last three games, No.17 OU (10-1) has been significantly better in this area.
