- Oklahoma has led at halftime in 10 of its last 11 games. They went 6-5 in those 11 games and ended on a three-game losing streak.
- Three of the four seniors who were active to play struggled in against San Diego State. Point guard Sam Grooms had two assists and three points and wasn’t aggressive enough for Oklahoma coach Lon Kruger. Shooting guard Steven Pledger garnered just three points. He went 1-of-8 the floor and 1-of-6 from 3-point range. Reserve Andrew Fitzgerald only saw the floor for three minutes in his final game because Romero Osby, the fourth senior, was doing so well. Osby carried his team with 22 points and eight rebounds in 37 minutes.
- Neither team came close to setting an NCAA Tournament Individual or Team High for or against Oklahoma on Friday night in Philadelphia.
- Had the Sooners won, they would have played No. 15 seed Florida Golf Coast University. The Eagles upset No. 2 seed Georgetown by 10 in the game directly before OU-SDSU.

This is San Diego State’s mascot. I’m pretty sure in half the media’s mind, he still has nothing on The Mountaineer.
