NCAA appearance: Guarded condition
Yes, the Sooners returned to the NCAA Tournament this season, making their first appearance since Blake Griffin and Co. But they failed to survive until the weekend, done in by San Diego State. In the program's last 10 trips to the tournament, this is only the third one-and-done. With senior Romero Osby carrying such a big load late, it begs the question — can they do better next year?
March Madness: Critical condition
The month of March was not kind to the Sooners. Instead of playing their best ball and building momentum toward the postseason, they became a wildly inconsistent team and lost three of five games in the month. Their offense failed them late in the season, never more so than against San Diego State. Everyone not named Romero Osby went 14 of 43 vs. the Aztecs.
Attendance: Stable condition
The Sooners had a three-year high in ticket sales this season, rebounding from two abysmal seasons. Each of the past two years, OU averaged below 8,600 tickets sold per home game. This season, it averaged 9,890. The Sooners have yet to see home crowds return to Blake Griffin Era standards, but after three years of decline, any increase is positive. An increase of more than 1,300 a game is extremely positive.
Recruiting: Stable condition
