Lewis To Miss Oklahoma Game, Ridley Back

When the Longhorns take on Oklahoma on Wednesday, they'll be without one of their leading scorers.

Julien Lewis was knocked out of the Longhorns' 81-69 loss to Kansas State over the weekend, and the 6-3 sophomore will miss the Oklahoma game with symptoms of a concussion.

Lewis is currently Texas's third-leading scorer, averaging 10.3 points per game, and is considered one of the Longhorns' better perimeter defenders. With him out, expect Texas to rely more on Sheldon McClellan and recent starter DeMarcus Holland. Lewis has started 20 of 27 games this year, but recently has given way to Holland, who has seven starts on the year.

Texas will get one injured player back, with Cameron Ridley cleared to play against the Sooners. Ridley missed the Kansas State game with an eye injury. Ridley is averaging just 4.3 points per game, but is third on the team in rebounds per gam with 4.5 and leads the team in blocked shots. He has started 17 of the 26 games he's played in.
