Oklahoma will be counting on another strong performance from the team’s leading scorer Grant Sherfield who is averaging 17.65 points per game for the Sooners. Sherfield is also important to the team’s ability to score on the perimeter. So far, he leads the team in 3-point shots made. Also key to the Sooners’ offensive game plan is the play of Tanner Groves who has hit 54.8% of his field goal attempts on his way to averaging 10.53 points per game.
