You can questions Cincinnati's schedule strength to this point but even at that there isn't a whole lot on Oklahoma's resume to build confidence in. The Sooners have played much better as of late but even at that they are still a team that has struggled in shooting and taking care of the ball.

This will be the biggest test the Sooners have faced since Jeff Capel switched to a four guard lineup and possibly the toughest game left before conference play begins. On average the Bearcats are winning their games by more than 20 points. They're holding opponents to 38% shooting from the floor while shooting 45% themselves. Possibly the most troublesome thing in this match-up is that the Sooners have struggled with defending the perimeter and Cincinnati is averaging 7 made three-point baskets per game.
