Thanksgiving is behind us now which means that the college football season is winding down and basketball is about to take center stage. After going 2-1 in the Bahamas, at the Battle for Atlantis, the Oklahoma Sooners are off to a 5-1 start on the season, which is better than many expected.
On Saturday Sports Illustrated released The Biggest Winners and Losers of College Basketball’s Feast Week and they had Oklahoma listed among the winners.
The Sooners took third at the Battle 4 Atlantis, which was a good showing for a team not expected to make a ton of noise in the Big 12. An opening win over Florida was impressive, and while it couldn’t hang with Wisconsin, Oklahoma finished up with a win over Dayton to move to 5-1 on the season. Senior Christian James averaged 19 points and shot 47% from three in the tournament. – Sports Illustrated
Oklahoma was joined on SI’s list of winners by conference mates Kansas, Texas and Texas Tech.
