What do New York City, the Bahamas, San Antonio, Tulsa, and Oklahoma City all have in common? Those are all places that Oklahoma men’s basketball will be playing games next season.
For the first time since 1977 Oklahoma will open the season with back-to-back road games. The first time OU fans will have an opportunity to see the 2018-19 basketball version of the Sooners will be November 18th when they host Wofford.
Big matchups to prepare us for Big 12 play.
