The first meeting was during the Old Spice Classic over Thanksgiving break in Orlando, Fla. The Sooners won 77-70 with Amath M'Baye leading the way with 19 points.

The second meeting was in Morgantown, W.Va., in West Virginia's first official Big 12 game on Jan. 5. The Sooners beat the Mountaineers, 67-57. Senior forward Romero Osby finished with 21 points and nine rebounds.

“We haven't played them for two months, so it's almost like throw (those early games) out the window,” Kruger said. “Both teams are so different now then we were early January.”

Oklahoma last beat a team three times in one season in 2003 when they beat Texas Tech. The third victory came in the Big 12 Tournament.
