Two Things

  • Harkless joins the show - Prior to this evening’s game, the NCAA announced that all transfers will be immediately eligible to play for the rest of the season. This, of course, means that Cal State Northridge transfer Elijah Harkless is available for this evening’s game. How much we’ll see of him tonight is unknown, but it’ll allow Lon Kruger to tinker with the lineups a bit more. Additionally, Harkless should provide a boost to OU’s perimeter defense, which has been a weak spot for the team.
  • Reaves with the dish - Through four games as Oklahoma’s new point guard, senior Austin Reaves is averaging 6.3 assists per game and has reached the eight-assist mark on two occasions. He’s one of only two major-conference players (the other being Pittsburgh’s Xavier Johnson) averaging at least 16 points, six assists and four rebounds per contest.

Prediction

Oklahoma 87, ORU 63
