Oklahoma vs Kansas Game Preview
Why Oklahoma Will Win
Well that’s more like it, Oklahoma.
The Sooners were able to rock Texas Tech by hitting a ton from three and clamping down enough defensively to stop a bad losing run with a 70-55 win.

Oklahoma will have its moments, but it won’t be able to keep up in the last ten minutes.
