Oklahoma took a win over rival Texas this past Saturday. While it was a big win for the Sooners, there are not enough games for them to gain the top spot in the Big 12 rankings. However, they are doing exactly what they need to do to keep momentum going into the Big 12 Tournament that starts on March 12th.
There are only two more games in the regular season, where the Sooners will face West Virginia and TCU. It will be important for Oklahoma to win out to secure a first-round bye for the tournament. Big 12 Basketball Tournament tickets are going as low as $17 to upwards of $700.
If the Sooners can keep playing with emotion and focus, I think they are favorites to take the Big 12 title. Only time will tell!
