OU men's basketball: Sooners add Oral Roberts to non-conference schedule

NORMAN — OU’s men’s basketball team has another non-conference game.

The Sooners added Oral Roberts to their schedule on Friday, OU announced, with the game set for 7 p.m. Wednesday inside Lloyd Noble Center.

OU opened its season Thursday night with a 105-66 rout of Texas-San Antonio. The Sooners’ opener was postponed eight days due to COVID-19 positive tests and contact tracing.

And they also lost games at UCF and with Florida.

OU coach Lon Kruger said on Tuesday that the UCF game would not be made up this season. The start of the home-and-home series with Florida was already pushed back to next season.

For ORU, its the second matchup against in-state Big 12 schools. The Golden Eagles travel to Stillwater to face Oklahoma State on Tuesday.
