Marcus Zegarowski has been in the eyes of NBA scouts as he has lead this Bluejays squad with 199.4 points, 3.6 rebounds, 4.1 assists and 1.1 steals. Another player on the radar of scouts is Ty-Shon Alexander who is solid from inside and outside doing 17.1 points, 6.1 rebounds, 2 assists, a steal while shooting 45.2% from the three-point arc. Both players provide a tough load to manage for the Sooners and they also have to think about Mitch Ballock.

Hosting this game against the Sooners is something that they would welcome since their opponents will be as tough as nails to handle.
