New, 43 comments

Tip Time: 8:30 pm

Location: Madison Square Garden, NY

TV: ESPN 2

Radio: KRXO FM-107.7 in Oklahoma City, KTBZ AM-1430 in Tulsa

 

Its statement time for Oklahoma! After an amazing game against Davidson in front of a national television audience to advance to the semifinals of the NIT the Sooners struggled to put away Gardner-Webb on Saturday.

 

Now they will have another national television audience and a chance to stake a claim as the conference’s best basketball team early in the season. It should be a fun night of basketball.
