Not going to want to miss this one, Sooners are a 1.5 favorite, and a very solid team, but they do not have the superstars they have had in year’s past, and this is an opportunity for the Frogs to punch up against an OU team that looks to be solidly in the middle tier of the conference. In other words the kinds of home games you win if you want to go to The Dance.

Frogs should have a rebounding edge, but will have to limit defensive lapses, but on the perimeter and in help defense.

We also need O’Bannon or Miller or step up offensively and take some of the scoring load off of Miles. Make your Free throws, limit turnovers, Go Frogs.
