2019 Tournament PreviewThe Sooners finished 7-11 in the Big 12 and were upset in the first round of the conference tournament, but they showed their strength in non-conference play with wins over Wofford, Florida and Creighton. Their problem is offense. Oklahoma ranked ninth in conference play in offensive efficiency (per KenPom), highlighted by poor shooting (32.8 percent from 3-point range) and poor rebounding (154th nationally in rebounding rate overall). The Sooners rely on three scorers: 6-4 guard Christian James (14.4 ppg, 6.3 rpg), 6-9 forward Brady Manek (12.0 ppg, 6.1 rpg) and 6-7 forward Kristian Doolittle (11.2 ppg, 7.0 rpg), but Manek is the best long-range shooter at just 35.4 percent and no one else on the team averages more than seven points per game. The Sooners win with defense, ranking 23rd nationally in KenPom's defensive efficiency by holding opponents to 40.2 percent shooting from the field (22nd in the nation), including 33.3 percent from the perimeter. But Oklahoma's offense doesn't give it much margin for error.
