OU Men's Basketball To Live Stream Practices This Season

Posted: Updated:
NORMAN, Oklahoma -

Last year, Lon Kruger and his Oklahoma men's basketball program opened Lloyd Noble Center's doors to the public for all of the Sooners' practices. Now they're taking things a step further.

Starting at 5 p.m. CT this Friday, Oct. 12 (the first opportunity for Division I teams to practice), Kruger and the Sooners will stream their preseason workouts live for free on SoonerSports.tv.

"We've said since day one that this is 'our' team, meaning we want the fans to play a huge part in our success," said Kruger. "We welcome and encourage fans to attend our practices, but we realize that for various reasons not everyone is able to make it. Now, no matter where they may be located, fans can check in on our progress, see what we're working on and get to know our players."

The live practice feed will also include audio. In fact, Kruger plans to wear a microphone for some of the workouts and even provide occasional commentary on what's taking place on the court.

OU's weekly practice and live stream schedule through Oct. 20 can be foundbelow. The schedule for ensuing practices will be posted on SoonerSports.com starting next week. Weekday practices usually begin at 2 p.m. CT and last for two-and-a-half hours. At the coaching staff's discretion, the video stream may be closed for short portions of practice.

"We're excited about this venture," said Kruger, "and hopefully our fans are, too."

OU is believed to be the first Division I men's basketball team to stream its practices daily.
