The OU men's basketball team will get national coverage Friday night on truTV, normally a network that only carries basketball in the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament.

The Sooners will play Seton Hall at 6 p.m. in Coaches vs. Cancer Classic from Brooklyn, N.Y. Top-ranked Michigan State meets Virginia Tech in the second game about 8:30 p.m. Coverage will continue at 6 p.m. Saturday with the consolation and championship games.

Brian Anderson will call the games with analysts Greg Anthony and Steve Smith and reporter Craig Sager.

Anthony, who has replaced Clark Kellogg as CBS' top analyst, complimented the Sooners and said the Big 12 will rank as one of the top conferences this season.

“They can get up (the court) and score, they share (the ball) really well and their ball movement is excellent,” he said in a conference call. “A lot of people thought that they would be a decent team, but I didn't think they would have the kind of growth that they've had this early in the season. They are going to be one of the better teams in the Big 12.”
