Getting demolished by Texas on Saturday only put more pressure on the Sooners to win tonight and suddenly a win against Nebraska doesn't seem like a sure thing. The Huskers have a strong disadvantage inside where Blake, Taylor and Longar should have a great night but only if the guards are able to produce.

It has become abundantly clear that in order to beat the Sooners you don't have to shutdown Blake Griffin all you have to do is pressure the guards into sloppy play and recently that hasn't been such a big deal.

A win for the Sooners would lift them off of the NCAA bubble and keep them in contention for the conference's fourth place spot which would give them a bye in the first round of the conference tournament. A loss wouldn't necessarily mean that their NCAA tournament dreams are over but it would definitely mean that they would have more ground to make up and the margin for error becomes very, very slim.

No TV for tonight's game so we'll have to rely on the internet and radio for updates.
