After a week off the Sooners return to the Lloyd Nobel Center to face UT Arlington. Oklahoma's (5-3) has been off since last Saturday's lopsided 64-47 victory against Coppin State. UTA (5-4) may be a bit rusty when they hit the hardwood, the Maverick's have had a 12 day layoff, UT Arlington lost to Western Illinois 74-57 December 4th.
Saturday's game is the first between the two programs since 1997, Oklahoma leads the all-time series, 4-0.
The Sooners will be at full strength when they host Texas-Arlington Saturday night at 7 p.m. Coach Jeff Capel says Austin Johnson and Taylor Griffin are at full speed after being sick for two weeks, and backup guard Bobby Maze is back after breaking his foot, last month.
