Watch Oklahoma basketball players swim with sharks in the Bahamas

Wednesday November 26th, 2014

The Oklahoma men's basketball team gets to spend the holiday weekend relaxing in the beautiful Bahamas. But the Sooners' Khadeem Lattin and James Fraschilla weren't content to lounge on the beach. They sought out something a little more heart-pounding. 

Lattin and Fraschilla put on wet suits and diving gear and went for swim with some fearsome predators.

They were accompanied by handlers who kept them safe, but that didn't stop Lattin from spinning a tall tale about how he fought the sharks off once he surfaced. Luckily for him, the sharks were smart enough not to mess with the 6-foot-9 Lattin.
