After a chaotic week of college basketball, the Oklahoma Sooners dropped two spots to No. 9 in this week’s AP Poll. Texas Tech moved up to No. 8, setting up a top-10 matchup at the Lloyd Noble Center on Tuesday night.

With West Virginia checking in at No. 2, the Big 12 has three teams in the top 10 this week. Kansas (No. 12) and TCU (No. 16) give the conference at total of five teams in this week’s poll.

This top-10 matchup between the Sooners and Red Raiders is exciting, but I’m not sure it could have come at a worse time as far as attendance is concerned. The game tips off at 6 p.m. on a weekday, and most students will still be out of town. If you have the ability to attend the game, I definitely urge you to do so. Tickets as cheap as $10. That’s a pretty good deal to watch Trae Young, isn’t it?
