Neither one of these teams is any good. Oklahoma is just 8-16 on the campaign, Texas limps in with a 10-15 record. Neither is likely to have a post season, which makes games like this interesting because both teams really have nothing to play for but pride.
The Longhorns are a mess under Shaka Smart, but he should be able to get it turned around during his time in Austin. They’ve alternated wins and losses the last seven games to go 3-4 during the stretch, one of those games was a victory over Oklahoma 84-83 as Andrew Jones hit a triple with 1.8 seconds left to give the Horns the win.
Oklahoma will be without Jordan Woodard for the remainder of the season. He’s their best player and without him who knows what type of effort the Sooners will bring to the floor. The Sooners are 1-8 against the Top 50 in the RPI this season; the lone win came against West Virginia.
Texas is 1-10 against the Top 50, they beat Oklahoma State in early January. They’re horrible on the road at 0-8 and it’s going to be tough for them to win here, even with the Woodard injury for the Sooners.
