West Virginia - OU in Hoops

Today the Sooners play the 'Eers in hoops. We'll get another game to measure the Sooners against credible national competition before conference play.After home victories against Arkansas and Gonzaga, the Sooners now travel to Charlestown, WV to play Bob Huggins' Mountaineer team. The Moutnaineers are more than credible., they are the 12th ranked team in the country. Per the Sagarin rankings, this is the second best team the Sooners have played this year, with the exception being the Memphis Tigers on a neutral court in NYC.

The Sooners toughest opponent in a hostile environment to date has been the trip to LA to visit Southern Cal, which resulted in a 66-55 loss. The only other pure road game the Sooners have played is in Fort Worth, against the TCU Horned Frogs.

To date I've been pleasantly surprised by the Sooners, so we'll see what happens later today.
