    Trae Young goes for 43 points today and he leads the nation in scoring and assist at the same time. OU is tied for 1st in the Big 12. I'm starting to become a believer in this team.

    I love watching that kid play. Went to a few of his high school games and you could tell he was destined for big things, and seems to be a good kid off the court.

    Looks like the Norman College Premature Ejaculators will be playing well into March this year.

    I can't stand any OU team, but I am a huge Lon Kruger fan... That dude is a hell of a coach.

    This is what screwed college hoops up, the NBA. Now they are going back to the "no college needed" platform to further crush college sports. I wish they'd at least do what the NFL does and require 3 years.

    Have been watching them. Very good, but they're one dimensional. I watched them lose at West Virginia. Cover up Trae Young and the team suffers, especially since they don't have a "Big man Inside" game. They should do well as long as Young does well. I imagine some of the tougher tournament teams will cover Young up and reduce his efficiency.

    I don't know I think OU has a lot of nice pieces around Young. And true freshman Manik is pretty damn good as well.

    They played WVU, a very good team, down to the wire, at WVU’s place. Mid way through the season, a bunch of freshman went into a hostile place like WVU and faced a senior led team and gave them all they wanted. If I were WVU, I’d be the one worried about the tournament or even the game back in Norman. Those young kids from OU haven’t even figured out how good they can be yet. WVU may have peaked already.

    I spent yesterday afternoon glued to the TV watching 5 seriously entertaining Big 12 basketball games. As I recall, 4 were decided by 4 points or less and the other, Iowa State/Baylor, was a 3 point game in the last minute, or so. Best basketball I've seen in a long time.
