Two high major foes meet on a semi neutral court in Tulsa, Oklahoma on Saturday afternoon.

No. 9 Arkansas faces an Oklahoma team that has scored a few impressive wins thus far but is looking for something to hold their hat on in non conference play with a top 10 victory. Playing in nearby Tulsa, the Sooners will look to pull a slight upset against a formidable Razorbacks squad.

Porter Moser has leaned on transfer Grant Sherfield to provide an offensive spark, but the team is hoping that Jalen Hill can return to the lineup from injury and help propel the team to victroy.

Arkansas vs. Oklahoma Prediction and Pick

This is a battle of contrasting styles as Oklahoma plays at the 335th average tempo, funneling teams inside the paint on defense and working the ball around the perimeter on offense. This comes as the opposite of how Arkansas wants to play, averaging the 44th fatest offensive possession length with a sound interior offense.

The Razorbacks are one of the biggest teams in the country, third in average height and shoot nearly 55% on two-point tries. However, they are typically one and done on offense, 216th in offensive rebounding rate.

The Sooners need to be careful with the ball against a turnover-centric Razorbacks defense (24th in turnover rate). but I'll trust Sherfield and the Sooners efficient offense to hold serve. Oklahoma is top 20 in terms of effective field goal percentage and not overly on perimeter shots. With their methodical offense, I believe they can slow this game down to a crawl and stay within two buckets.
