Oklahoma currently looks to be one of the teams "on the bubble” for an NCAA Tournament bid. Here's a look at the Sooners' status:
•Vs. RPI top 50:
•If they beat Texas:
The Sooners would become a virtual lock for the Big Dance. Texas has an RPI of 5 and a road win like that would leave OU playing for a better seed, not a berth, in the final four games.
•If they lose to Texas:
No one will really take notice. This isn't a game the Sooners must win, nor is it a game the selection committee will expect them to win. A loss won't damage OU's RPI and the schedule strength will get a boost from such a game.
•If today were Selection Sunday OU would be:
In, and in position for a seed in the 7-9 range.
