AUSTIN, TX -- A.J. Abrams scored 18 of Texas' final 20 points Saturday night, leading the Longhorns to a 73-68 upset of No. 2 Oklahoma, which had to play most of the game without leading scorer and rebounder Blake Griffin after he sustained a concussion in the first half.

Abrams scored 16 in a row in the final 8 minutes, hitting four 3-pointers, then capped off the scoring with two free throws with 4 seconds to play.

Griffin, the Big 12's leading scorer and leading rebounder, played just 11 minutes and left for good with about four minutes left in the first half, finishing with two points and three rebounds. Griffin appeared to take a shot to the face when he tried to spin for a baseline shot.

Willie Warren scored 27 points to lead Oklahoma (25-2, 11-1 Big 12), which had won 13 in a row.

Abrams finished with 23 points and Damion James scored 16 for the Longhorns ( 18-8, 7-5).
