Oklahoma basketball: Sooners picked 6th in Big 12 Preseason Poll”

The Dollar General Big 12 Tailgate Tour will make an appearance at all 10 Conference campuses this season, as well as the Big 12 Championship Game and the men's basketball and baseball championships.

The Sooners have finished higher than it was picked in the preseason polls the last four out of six seasons under coach Lon Kruger, and have also finished in the top four in four out of the last five seasons, according to a press release. The Jayhawks have been the favorite in the preseason poll 16 times in the Big 12 era.

The last time Oklahoma State finished last in the Big 12, it was the Big 8 and only featured five of the teams now in the Big 12. West Virginia was chosen second and received a first-place vote from KU coach Bill Self.

Oklahoma was picked to finish sixth last season, but ended at ninth after going 11-20 overall and 5-13 in league play. Kameron McGusty, a member of the All-Big 12 Newcomer Team last season, Khadeem Lattin, Christian James and Rashard Odomes are all back, and are joined this season in the starting lineup by five-star recruit and McDonald's All-American Trae Young.

While not surprising given the roster and coaching turnover, they do return one of the league's best players in guard Jeffrey Carroll, a 6-foot-6, 220-pound senior who averaged 17.5 points and 6.6 rebounds in just 29 minutes per game a year ago. This should be the most anticipated basketball season for the Horned Frogs in recent memory.
