Why Oklahoma Will Win

The Sooners are aggressive enough to bother a Baylor team that turns it over a bit too much.

Oklahoma doesn’t have an inside presence and it doesn’t come up with enough rebounds. If it’s not making things happen on the move, forget it. The Baylor three point D is too good.

Oklahoma should be a tough out.

Baylor is too fast and too active – the Sooners don’t have the inside presence to do much if they’re not hitting from three – and it’ll go on two big runs to get out of this alive.

OU will win the free throw battle and it’ll have its moments, but as good as the team is from the field – again, transition points help – the inability to score from the outside against the Bears will be too much to overcome.
