Oklahoma Sooners at Baylor Bears Game Overview
Baylor can score points when they need to, but their defense has been the real story this year. The Bears have plenty of length and athleticism, and they are holding opponents to less than 58 points per game. Guard Jared Butler is scoring more than 16 points per game, but the Bears have plenty of depth to throw at the Sooners. The Bears have already beaten some terrific teams this season, and they have plenty of momentum.
The Sooners want to play fast when they have the ball, and they are going to shoot a ton of three-pointers. Oklahoma is going to have to shoot it well to stay in this game, and that starts with Kristian Doolittle. Doolittle leads the team with 16.8 points per game, but he is capable of leading this team to an upset. Oklahoma has struggled at times on defense, and they are allowing close to 70 points per game.
