Big 12 Men's Team Profile: Oklahoma
2017 Record: 13-9 overall, 1-3 Big 12
Nick Crowell is in his first season at Oklahoma. Previously, he was the associate head coach at Florida State. He has an impressive history at Florida State, but it will be interesting to see how he does at Oklahoma. So far, the team is doing well under his direction. The Big 12 tournament and (hopefully) the NCAA tournament will really show us what he is capable of as the head coach of Oklahoma.

The Oklahoma team started of ranked #12 in the ITA rankings and have stayed pretty consistent. This team performs better under pressure and plays up though when it comes to tournaments...Oklahoma has been the NCAA runner-up team for the past 3 years. The Sooners are the fifth seed in the tournament (out of six teams) but don't count them out yet. A few of their most notable wins this season include: Texas Tech and their most recent sweep of their rivals, Oklahoma State.
Oklahoma will play the number 4 seed, Texas, in the first round of the tournament on Thursday, April 27. The Sooners lost to the Longhorns 3-4 in their season meeting, but if perform better under pressure like they're used to, the Sooners will be able to swing the match their way for the win.
