Blake Griffin worked out at full speed on Friday and barring any unforeseen set backs should be ready to play Saturday against Missouri. Regardless of what people may be saying or feeling this is a must win for the Sooners. While I feel that they are already in the tournament knocking off the Tigers would make them a sure lock for the dance. I would also guarantee the 4th seed in the conference tournament giving Oklahoma that coveted first round bye on Thursday.
Look for the guards to continue to set the tone for the game. If Tony Crocker and Austin Johnson are able to remain effective like the were against Oklahoma State Wednesday night then working the ball down low to Griffin and Longar should be relatively easy. However, if the guards are off then this could be a dogfight that goes to the wire.
