Oklahoma basketball is starting to get some national attention. Following a statement 78-55 win over No. 9 Villanova, the Sooners (7-0) are all the way up to No. 3 in this week's polls.

The Sooners are just one of eight remaining undefeated Division I teams. The Big 12, along with Kansas (No. 2) and Iowa State (No. 5), has three programs in the top five of the AP Poll.
