The Matchup
Tonight's game will be a matchup between two teams at the opposite end of the Big 12 standings. Oklahoma comes into the game in a three-way tie for first at 10-3, while Kansas is in sole possession of last place at 3-10.

The Jayhawks actually come into the game on a bit of a streak having won three of their last four games, including wins over Colorado and Kansas State in Lawrence and Texas in Austin. However, the bad news for the Jayhawks is they will have a hard time stopping Sooner center Courtney Paris with their tallest starter only standing at 5-foot-11 inches.

KU leads the all-time series 27-22, but the Sooners have won the last eight meetings. OU won in Norman last season, 86-57.
