What to Know
The Oklahoma Sooners will square off against the Nebraska Cornhuskers at 5 p.m. ET Thursday at State Farm Field House. Both teams come into the game bolstered by wins in their previous games.
Oklahoma came out on top in a nail-biter against the South Alabama Jaguars last Friday, sneaking past 64-60. The Sooners' guard Grant Sherfield filled up the stat sheet, picking up 17 points and eight assists.
Meanwhile, Nebraska took their matchup against the Arkansas-Pine Bluff Golden Lions on Sunday by a conclusive 82-58 score. The Cornhuskers can attribute much of their success to forward Juwan Gary, who had 17 points in addition to seven boards, and forward Blaise Keita, who posted a double-double on 14 points and ten rebounds.
Oklahoma is expected to win this handily, but they should have beaten the Sam Houston Bearkats Nov. 7 easily too and instead slipped up with a 52-51. In other words, don't count Nebraska out just yet.
