Oklahoma has dominated their first two opponents, as they have scored 82 and 89 points and they have won by margins of 39 and 30 points. The Sooners are shooting over 50% from the field, compared to only 42.4% by Texas State. The Bobcats lost to Little Rock in their opener, but they did get a win against Miami (OH) in their second game. Texas State is averaging 48.5 rebounds per game, which is a lot, but I don’t think they will find that success here. I like Oklahoma to win big in this game.
