Austin: Can Anyone Beat Oklahoma??

By Jean Neuberger - March 19, 2007

The Sooners have made this game into another blowout, as they've pushed their lead to 49-25 with 12:04 to go in the game, outscoring the Golden Eagles 20-6 so far this half, much to the delight of the four sections in the Erwin Center that are donned in crimson and cream.

Marquette is shooting just 17 percent right now from the field (6-35). That's not going to beat anyone, much less one of the best teams in the nation. The Sooners were clearly underrated as a #3 seed. They've got size, speed, and great shooters all over the court. They have the nation's most dominating presence in Courtney Paris, and they have a tight, cohesive unit that believes in each other completely. If a team has a weakness, the Sooners exploit it and just keep rollling.

Who's going to stop OU? If anyone can, they have to have the total package. They've got to have tall, speedy guards to shut down Plumley and Rush, and combine it with impressive size to contain the Paris twins. They've got to be shooting well, and they've got to hope the Sooners are having an off night on the floor.

Otherwise, Oklahoma's going to be one very tough opponent to beat for anyone.
