Kansas basketball takes on the Oklahoma Sooners tonight. Here’s the TV channel, odds, game time, and more!

The key to stopping the Sooners revolves around stopping Kristian Doolittle. The sophomore forward is averaging 17.1 points per game, which leads the team. The Kansas defense had trouble stopping the Bears last Saturday, but the Jayhawks should be able to handle Oklahoma.
On the offensive end, both Udoka Azubuike and Devon Dotson struggled to get going against the Bears. Dotson actually missed a good chunk of the game due to a hip injury. He returned to the game later, and he should be good to go for the Oklahoma game. Dotson will be sore though, according to head coach Bill Self:
“Every time [Dotson] gets hit it’s going to linger, but it’s not something that I think you sit for according to the reports I’ve got from trainer…” – Bill Self
If Dotson doesn’t make the start or plays a more limited role, look for Marcus Garrett to pick up the slack at the point guard today.
One of the only bright spots from the game came from Isaiah Moss, who’s struggled with consistency this season. Moss dropped in a team-high 15 points in the loss, but the Jayhawks could really benefit from having Moss become even more of a three-point threat.

This is an important bounce back game for Kansas basketball. The Baylor loss was demoralizing, but it certainly doesn’t mean the season is lost. There’s a lot of basketball yet to be played, and it starts tonight on the road against Oklahoma.
