In the NCAA selection committee’ initial “bracket reveal” on Saturday, Oklahoma looks solid.
The Sooners are a No. 3 seed and No. 12 overall in the committee’s top 16, which was revealed just minutes before OU tipped off in a Big 12 Conference game at West Virginia.
Saturday’s game is a showdown of the No. 2 and 3 teams currently in the Big 12 standings. Oklahoma is 12-5 overall and 7-4 Big 12, while WVU is 14-5 and 7-3.
OU has four wins this season over opponents ranked in the committee’s top 16: No. 7 Alabama, No. 10 WVU and No. 15 Texas.
Elsewhere in the Big 12, No. 2 Baylor is a 1-seed, No. 10 WVU is a 3-seed, No. 14 Texas Tech is a 4-seed, and No. 15 Texas is a 4-seed.
