The Series

Tonight’s game against Missouri marks the 211th meeting between the old conference foes. The Sooners are 113-97 all-time against the Tigers and have faced the former conference foe just once (2014) since Mizzou left for the SEC.

Behind Enemy Lines

Despite the game being played on a neutral court (Kansas City, MO.), the Tigers will still be in their home state. Of Oklahoma’s four neutral site games this year, this marks the third to have taken plance in enemy territory. The Sooners defeated Minnesota in Sioux Falls, S.D. (15 miles from the Minnesota border) and Oregon State in Portland, Ore.

A Good Sign

The Sooners have never lost back-to-back November games during Lon Kruger’s tenure. Oklahoma fell to Stanford (73-54) on Monday night to mark their first loss of the season.

It Gets Lonely On The Road

Tonight’s matchup will be Oklahoma’s fourth game away from home through its first seven contests. The Sooners won’t play at home again until Dec. 21. OU is one of only three major-conference teams to play seven of its first 10 games coming away from home, joined by Seton Hall and Wake Forest.

Leading The Charge

Dating back to last season, junior forward Brady Manek has scored in double figures in 19 of his last 22 games.

Junior guard Austin Reaves is fifth in the Big 12 in scoring with 16.7 points per game.
