OU'S NEAL, TCU'S FIELDS MEET AS FOES
In 2010, Tyler Neal and Amric Fields helped lead Putnam City West to the state basketball tournament for the first time in 33 years.
The pair grew up just blocks away from each other in northwest Oklahoma City, regularly going over to each other's houses to play basketball.
Wednesday night at Lloyd Noble Center, OU's Neal and TCU's Fields faced off as opponents for the first time in Oklahoma's win.
Fields, a redshirt junior, was injured for much of last season, missing both meetings between the schools.
The 6-foot-9 forward started for the Horned Frogs and had 15 points and 5 rebounds.
Neal came off the bench for the Sooners and was placed on Fields several times during the game.
Oklahoma (15-4, 4-2 Big 12) goes on the road again Saturday to face Tubby Smith's Texas Tech squad.
Tip-off is 3 p.m. on KOCB-34 (Cox 11).
The Red Raiders (10-9, 2-4) lost at West Virginia, 87-81, on Wednesday night.
