Here’s what you need to know about both games:

Oklahoma vs. Wichita State (3 p.m.)

-The Sooners (6-2) and Shockers (8-2) will square off in the All-College Classic inside of Chesapeake Energy Arena with the game scheduled to air on ESPN2.

-OU’s looking to string together back-to-back wins after losing at No. 17 Wisconsin last Saturday. The Sooners led the entire first half, but struggled to score the ball in the second half as the Badgers pulled away for the win. OU bounced back on Wednesday with a convincing 92-66 win over Oral Roberts.

-Wichita State has won three straight games and is coming off a 75-45 win over Saint Louis. The Shockers’ only two losses this season came against No. 10 Louisville and No. 24 Michigan State.

Oklahoma State @ Tulsa (4 p.m.)

-The Cowboys (6-2) will hit the road to take on the Golden Hurricane (4-3) in an in-state clash inside the Reynolds Center. The game is set to air on CBSSN.

-OSU won its first four games of the Brad Underwood era before dropping two of their last four matchups against No. 4 North Carolina at the Maui Invitational and on the road at Maryland (71-70). This Cowboys’ team is much improved from last year and should take care of a Tulsa team that lost to Arkansas Little Rock last week.

-Jawun Evans continues to prove that he’s one of the best players in the nation with a 23.6 point per game average this season. Evans’ only scored 16 points in the loss to Maryland, but he still managed to stuff the stat sheet with five assists, five rebounds and two steals.
