The Oklahoma Sooners and North Dakota State Bison could end up being one heck of an intriguing clash of 5 and 12 seed teams in the first full day of March Madness NCAA Tournament basketball games.
Oklahoma (23-9) entered this season with three sophomores, a freshman at point guard and a lone senior comprising their starting five. They weren’t supposed to be a high seed in the NCAA Tournament, yet somehow coach Lon Kruger got the team to gel and here they are as the number 5 seed.
Kruger is no stranger to March Madness having coached a total of five schools into the big dance. He is the only coach in the history of the NCAA to do so, and even won the Big 12 coach of the year for what he accomplished with his young team.
The Bison of North Dakota State were one of three upsets chosen by President Obama in his bracket. The Bison know it will take a lot more than a Presidential endorsement to take down the Sooners tonight in Spokane, Washington.
North Dakota State shoots over 50 percent per game, better than any other NCAA division 1 men’s basketball team. They do so without relying on a lot of threes and they will need that magic touch to pull off the upset.
