OU played their best game as a team Wednesday night against Tulsa and should be able to carry that dominant/aggressive style into today's game against Stephen F. Austin. The question is, will they?

Believe it or not the Lumberjacks should be a step up in competition from Tulsa for the Sooners. They'll enter the game with a 6-1 record and have won those six games by a 15 point average. They rank in the top 20 in points allowed by giving up an average of only 55.1 points per game.

On the floor they are led by center Matt Kingsley who is averaging team highs of 19.0 points and 6.3 rebounds. Forward Josh Alexander averages 13.8 points and 6.2 rebounds per game. Point guard Eric Bell is scoring 7.4 points a game and dishing out 6.6 assists. Forward Nick Shaw scores 7.3 points a game and grabs 6.0 rebounds and guard Gerald Fonzie scores 7.1 points a game.
