Vine: Buddy Hield's Clutch Block Of Darrell Davis Helps Send Oklahoma To The Sweet 16

Oklahoma's Buddy Hield is this year's Big 12 Player of the Year, and for good reason. The junior shooting guard does everything for the Sooners, and in tonight's Round of 32 game against Dayton, that includes making a crucial block on a fast break lay-up attempt that could have cut the Oklahoma lead to two points. Dayton guard Darrell Davis stole the ball from OU's Jordan Woodard, and immediately took off for the hoop. As he released the ball, Hield made a fantastic play to reject the shot out of his hand. Instead of a two-point game, Oklahoma was fouled and extended the lead.

Oklahoma finished the game with a 72-66 win, and will face Michigan State in the Sweet 16 at the Carrier Dome in Syracuse, NY.
