Oklahoma Basketball: The Season In Review (Part 2)

Steven Pledger Drills A Top Shot Of The Season Against The Baylor Bears (check at the 0:40 mark)

This season was certainly full of the good, the bad and the ugly. Each and every year, we experience the ups and downs of college basketball. Once again, Sooner fans were treated to a plethora of each of these categories as the team took the court. Favorites began to arise while stars were born. But, on the flip side, there were those who many feared would have their number called and would be inserted into the game.

Let's start with the good - The Sooners were able to start the season very well exceeded all expectations. While this got many fans excited, conference play had yet to get underway. However, the Sooners were able to remain competitive for twenty minutes against the likes of Kansas, Baylor, and Missouri. For a first year coach in Lon Kruger, none were disappointed as this team began to rally around one another. Then OU upset Kansas St. not once but twice which would hopefully springboard this squad to a new level. Steps are being made in the right direction and Sooner Nation will once again rise to power on the hardwood.

The Bad - The bad came out each and every game in conference play as the Sooners gave up a string of runs to being the second half or with just under ten minutes left in regulation. Time and time again Oklahoma remained competitive then faded out on the back nine. How will they fix this problem? The simple answer is with recruiting. Oklahoma had a depleted bench all season long and was unable to find fresh legs and scoring options.

The Ugly - Texas Tech...need anymore be said?
