According to a tweet from OU Athletics, the Oklahoma Sooners’ men’s basketball games against UTSA and UCF have been postponed. The games, which were scheduled for Wednesday and Saturday, respectively, have been put on hold due to positive COVID-19 tests within the program.

OU's games against UTSA (tonight) and UCF (Saturday) have been postponed.
We’ll have to wait and see whether or not these two games are eventually played, but it certainly seems doubtful. As of now, Oklahoma’s new season opener is the team’s Dec. 2 game against the Florida Gators at the Lloyd Noble Center.
I don’t know about you, but I was definitely looking forward to tonight. I wanted to see Lon Kruger unleash UNT transfer Umoja Gibson. I wanted to see Kur Kuath in his expanded role. I wanted to see if Austin Reaves could carry his momentum from the TCU performance into the early stages of this season. Most of all, I wanted to see Brady Manek’s majestic head of hair.
Unfortunately, with contact tracing, I don’t really know when we’ll finally be able to see this team play. On top of that, Florida had already announced that it had paused activities, so I’m not holding out much hope of that one being played, either. For now, we just have to hope that OU’s players are doing well and wish them the best of health.
