There’s a growing belief out there that Lon Kruger and the 2019-20 Oklahoma basketball team are going to surprise a lot of people. Now they are officially in position to do just that. The Big 12 released the preseason basketball poll on Thursday with the Sooners ranked #8 out of the ten conference schools.
Kruger has a roster featuring a slew of new faces to go along with standouts like junior Brady Manek and senior Kristian Doolittle. Wichita State transfer Austin Reaves will make his Oklahoma debut this season along with De’Vion Harmon who was a 4-star Top 50 recruit.
Doolittle was named preseason All-Big honorable mention on Thursday. Last season he was voted as the Most Improved Player in the conference, by the coaches, after becoming the only Big 12 player to average at least 13.0 points, 7.0 rebounds and 2.0 assists in conference play.
