Happy Wednesday, Sooners friends and fans!
Oklahoma Men’s Basketball continues to struggle this season, now losing seven of their last eight games after falling in Stillwater to Oklahoma State, 64-55. Outside of Tanner Groves and Elijah Harkless, the team shot just over 21% from the field and contributed a total of 17 points.
The Big 12 grind is like no other and there’s no better opportunity to get back in the win column than knocking off a Top 10 team on your home court. Next up is the No. 9 Texas Tech Red Raiders coming to the Lloyd Noble Center on Wednesday at 8 p.m. You can catch the game on ESPNU.
Some former Oklahoma Sooners Football players are once again turning heads on big stages. First of all, Perrion Winfrey was named the MVP of the Senior Bowl. That’s right. MVP as a Defensive Tackle. Winfrey racked up five tackles, three for loss and two sacks to earn the MVP honor. Winfrey is the first Senior Bowl defensive MVP since 2014.
Then in the Pro Bowl multiple former Sooners made their presence felt. First on Team NFC, Kyler Murray lead the game with 160 passing yards on 18/27 passing, with 3 touchdowns and an interception. CeeDee Lamb hauled in four catches for 41 yards. On the other side of the ball, Mark Andrews had a team high five catches for 82 yards and two touchdowns to power Team AFC to a 41-35 victory.
Perrion Winfrey absolutely took over the @SeniorBowl. Football fans better take notice.@FowlerRyan1 on how Winfrey is impressing in Mobile and why his draft stock is on the rise.#FrontOffice33 | #NFLDrafthttps://t.co/87AtNCXMzX— The Draft Network (@TheDraftNetwork) February 4, 2022
