What to Know

The Oklahoma Sooners lost both of their matches to the Oklahoma State Cowboys last season on scores of 90-94 and 75-79, so they’re hoping to turn the tables this season. Oklahoma and Oklahoma State will face off in a Big 12 battle at noon ET on Saturday at Gallagher-Iba Arena. Given that both teams suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a little extra motivation heading into this game.

The Sooners came up short against the TCU Horned Frogs on Monday, falling 72-63. Guard Elijah Harkless (13 points), guard Jordan Goldwire (13 points), and guard Umoja Gibson (12 points) were the top scorers for Oklahoma.

Meanwhile, Oklahoma State lost 71-68 to the Kansas State Wildcats on Wednesday on a last-minute half-court bomb from K-State’s guard Nijel Pack with 0:03 remaining. Oklahoma State’s defeat came about despite a quality game from guard Bryce Thompson, who had 22 points.

Oklahoma is now 13-9 while the Cowboys sit at 10-11. A couple numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: The Sooners have allowed their opponents an average of eight steals per game, the eighth most in college basketball. To make matters even worse for Oklahoma, Oklahoma State enters the contest with 9.6 steals per game on average, good for 11th best in college basketball. In other words, Oklahoma will need to work extra hard to take care of the ball.
