NORMAN — Oklahoma men's basketball coach Lon Kruger said before the season that he expected big things from guard Isaiah Cousins in his sophomore season.

After splitting time at the point last season, Cousins moved over to the wing this year.

Cousins has lived up to Kruger's promises so far this year, averaging 11.6 points, 3.4 rebounds and 3.0 assists through seven games.

After scoring seven or more points just four times last season and never scoring more than 10, Cousins has scored at least seven points in every game this year and has scored at least 10 in each of the last four.

Cousins and the Sooners will host Texas A&M-Corpus Christi at 2 p.m. Thursday at Lloyd Noble Center. The game was originally scheduled for 7 p.m. but was moved up due to impending inclement weather.

How are things going settling into your new role?

“I think it's going pretty good. I've been getting a lot of minutes trying to pick up from last year, and I've got a bigger role. I like the role I take. I think it's a good fit.”

Has it been much of an adjustment from what you were doing last year at the point to your role this season?
