Projected seed: 9

The Sooners have carved out a respectable spot for themselves considering the competition in the Big 12. Victories over Iowa State and wins against SEC contenders like Arkansas and Providence highlight their ability to compete with tournament teams. However, losses against top-tier squads such as Kansas, Baylor, and Houston demonstrate a level of inconsistency that might raise eyebrows. Oklahoma's defensive capabilities are apparent, but it's their offensive fluctuations that could be a cause for concern. The team needs to capitalize on every opportunity, especially against higher-ranked teams, to prove they are not just a middle-of-the-pack squad, but a tournament threat. The upcoming games against Cincinnati and Texas present chances to bolster their argument for a more favorable seeding, as another quality win or two could make a big difference when the selection committee deliberates their fate.
