This is a game where the Sooners should be able to take control and cruise to a victory the same way they did against TCU on Sunday night. Tulsa comes in with a 2-3 record and are turning the ball over an incredible 18.8 times per game.

The Golden Hurricane are led by guard Ben Uzoh who was a 2007 Conference USA All-Freshman Team choice. He leads the team with 16.0 points a game and is second in rebounding with 7.o a game. Guard Glenn Andrews is averaging 10.0 points and 2.0 assists. Center Jerome Jordan scores 8.0 points and grabs 5.6 rebounds per game along with 3 blocked shots. Guards Rod Earls and Brett McDade are averaging 6.2 and 6.0 this season respectively.
