Sooners To Take On Miners On Thanksgiving Day

Posted: Updated:
NORMAN, Oklahoma -

The Oklahoma Sooners basketball team will have to delay its Turkey Day feast a little bit this year.

Instead of chowing down on turkey and dressing, the Sooners will be opening the Old Spice Classic in Orlando, Fla. against the UTEP Miners on Thanksgiving Day (Thursday, Nov. 22). The bracket for the eight-team tournament was released today.

The Sooners and Miners will play at 6 p.m. CST on ESPN2. The Sooners and Miners last met in the All-College Classic in 2009, with UTEP coming out on top, 89-74.

The Sooners will play the winner or loser of the Clemson-Gonzaga first-round matchup on Friday, Nov. 23. The championship matchup will be on Sunday, Nov. 25, at 6 p.m. CST on ESPN2.

The Old Spice Classic boasts a strong field with Vanderbilt, Davidson, West Virginia, and Marist joining the Sooners, Clemson, Gonzaga and UTEP. Vanderbilt, Davidson, West Virginia, and Gonzaga all made the NCAA tournament last season.
