Oklahoma has the best depth in the league. They can go nine or 10 deep. Obviously, Buddy Hield is going to be a great player at Oklahoma. He is the most complete player of those three freshmen they have. They are going to fill a hit not having him, but you have three guys coming off the bench who have started a lot in their career when you look at (Cameron) Clark, (Sam) Grooms and (Andrew) Fitzgerald. It will make an impact, but they have depth. Coach (Lon0 Kruger has done a great job with this team.
What do you see as key matchups?
I think Oklahoma has an advantage in the 4 and 5 positions with Romero Osby and Amath M'Baye. That will play big. I think Oklahoma State might have the advantage at guard. It will be important for the Oklahoma guards to play solidly and take care of the ball and not try to do to much and let M'Baye and Osby try to take advantage of Oklahoma State.
