The Oklahoma Sooners may not possess the star power of years past, but this program currently sits 8-1 on the year. Utilizing a smothering defense, the program sports the third best record in the Big 12 Conference. However, it’s Christian James leading the charge each and every outing.
Labeled as the Big 12 Player of the Week following back-to-back wins at neutral sites, James averaged 19.5 points and 11.5 rebounds. Securing a 13 point, 13 rebound game on Saturday against Wichita State, the guard proved worthy of the weekly honor. Leading the team in scoring, James has helped produce five wins away from home of the eight gained this season.
Returning to action, the Sooners remain away from home court with a trip to the BOK Center in Tulsa. The opponent on Saturday is yet another member of the Power 5 in the Southern California Trojans. Tipping at 8PM CST, Oklahoma will continue to make a case for a spot in the top twenty-five.
