NORMAN, OK -- Blake Griffin scored 33 points and pulled down 14 rebounds to set a Big 12 season record and No. 4 Oklahoma beat Oklahoma State 82-78 on Saturday to claim the No. 2 seed in the conference tournament.

Griffin moved past Kansas' Drew Gooden for the season record with 425 rebounds. He notched his 25th double-double and helped the Sooners (27-4, 13-3) get back on the winning track after losing three of their last four games.

Oklahoma State's James Anderson scored 37 points to tie the most points ever scored in the Bedlam rivalry, and he got the Cowboys (20-10, 9-7) within 77-74 in the final 2 minutes when he connected on a 3-pointer from the left wing. 

Austin Johnson hit two with 1:47 to play to extend Oklahoma's lead, and the Sooners emerged with their fifth straight win in the series.
