In a game from NCAA Basketball, we will see Oklahoma at Kansas.
The Oklahoma Sooners are on a 7-game winning streak at the moment and they have only lost one game out of the 12 they played so far this season. They are coming off a narrow 76-69 overtime victory against Northwestern in their last match. Kristian Doolitle led the team in scoring with 14 points while the leading scorer James added 12 with 9 rebounds. James is averaging 17.9 points per game while the team is scoring 76.6 points per game on 46.1% shooting.
The Kansas Jayhawks are also 11-1 but they are coming off their first loss of the season against Eastern Michigan. It was a very tough loss where they scored just 63 points and allowed 87 on defense. Udoka Azubuike led the Jayhawks with 23 points on 10 of 13 shooting with a team-high 9 rebounds and a pair of blocks but he was the only one to produce on offense. As a team, Kansas is averaging 81.7 points per game.
We all expect Kansas to bounce back in this one and I believe they will. Despite all this, we can’t dismiss the fact that all of their games against reputable squads such as Virginia, Marquette, Michigan State, and Villanova have been decided by less than 10 points. I’m leaning towards giving the points to Oklahoma in this one.
