Although the season ended in the first round of the NCAA Tournament, fans are looking forward to the 2014-15 season. Returning four starters, the Oklahoma Sooners now have experience on their side as they prepare to end the winless post season drought under Lon Kruger. Play gets underway with two exhibition games followed by a highly anticipated Battle for Atlantis as Buddy Hield returns to the Bahamas at the end of November.

The field in the Bahamas features Florida, North Carolina, UCLA, and Wisconsin. Needless to say, the Sooners will quickly find out how they stack up against some of the top teams in the nation next season. Hopefully, the experience combined with the incoming big men produces the desired result. Only time will tell.
Until then, Boomer Sooner!
