Oklahoma is winding down it’s European tour for the summer as they lost to a team from the French National Basketball League to go 4-1 on the trip.

But the good news for the trip overall was the emergence of Cameron Clark. The senior 6’6″ wing has produced for the Sooners the past two seasons, but his minutes declined from 27 a game to 17 a game last season and he’s never averaged double-figures in scoring.

But on the European trip — according to a story from the AP — Clark started to develop as a scorer and could become a more reliable scoring threat.

Senior guard/forward Cameron Clark led OU in scoring for the fourth time in five games. He registered 15 points and added eight rebounds. Clark finished the tour averaging 16.8 points and 7.0 boards.
If Clark can continue to thrive as a scorer and also keep his field goal percentage of last season — 51 percent — then Oklahoma could have a nice advantage on the wing with Clark’s size and ability.
