Kansas (21-6, 10-4) is currently ranked #8 in the AP Poll.

Oklahoma (16-10, 6-8) comes in unranked but still receiving votes in both polls.

The Sooners are coached by Lon Kruger, who is 138-87 in seven seasons in Norman. Kruger is 617-391 overall as a head coach in 32 seasons.

Oklahoma won the first matchup with Kansas in Norman back on January 23, 85-80. The Jayhawks lead the all-time series against the Sooners, 146-67. KU has won 4 of the last 5 overall matchups and 17 of the last 20. KU is 47-7 in Allen Fieldhouse vs OU.

The Sooners have lost five in a row and 8 of 10, but Trae Young still leads the nation in scoring and assists. However, Young has struggled with turnovers in Big 12 play, giving the ball away 5 or more times in 12 of 14 conference games.
