Sooners move up one spot this week

Oklahoma Sooners

Oklahoma has won seven of its last eight, including both games last week, and moved up one spot in this week’s AP men’s basketball poll.

The Sooners are now at No. 16 in the rankings.

Oklahoma is 21-8 and 10-5 in the Big 12, a half game behind No. 12 Iowa State for second place in the league. Both teams trail No. 8 Kansas.

The Sooners are scoring 72.6 ppg and upped that to 76.1 ppg in their last five wins.

After a three-game winning streak, Oklahoma State has dropped three in a row and fell from the top 25 this week. The Cowboys (17-10, 7-8) received votes in the poll and would be listed at No. 29.
