Three things to know

• OU junior guard Elijah Harkless was named the Big 12’s Newcomer of the Week on Monday. The Cal State Northridge transfer led the conference with six steals and 20 rebounds on the week. He also averaged 7.5 points, 4.5 assists and 50% shooting. Since he joined the starting lineup, OU is 3-1 while winning the turnover battle 63-32 and holding opponents to 41% shooting.

• Texas has not played in 10 days due to COVID-19 positive tests and contact tracing at both Iowa State and TCU. The Longhorns return, however, without coach Shaka Smart, who announced Monday he had tested positive and was self isolating. Assistant K.T. Turner will be the acting head coach.

• OU is 56-41 overall against their Red River rivals in a series that dates back to Feb. 25, 1910. Texas, however, has won 20 of the last 31 meetings, including last season’s March 3 matchup in which Matt Coleman III banked in a 3-pointer with 0.4 seconds remaining for the win in Norman.
