“Good reminder that we've got to improve our habits and improve a lot of things but still excited about this group a lot.”

Squeaky shoes, slippery floors

As squeaks filled the rafters of the McCasland Field House, so did a few gasps. About 800 fans watched the Sooners run across a slick court. Multiple times a Sooner had the ball on offense and went to drive the lane or cut across the court and ended up slipping. Cousins even did a half-split while dribbling and recovered before passing the ball off.

“I fell like five times,” M'Baye said. “I don't know if something was wrong with the floor or my shoes.”

The Sooners will play two other games inside McCasland. The first game is an exhibition against Central Oklahoma on Nov. 7. The second is Dec. 31 against Texas A&M — Corpus Christi.

Quotable

Freshman Buddy Hield, who scored 16 points and had five rebounds: “I can do better. I did what coach wanted me to do, come in, rebound the ball, score a little bit.”
