NORMAN, Okla. (Oct. 6, 2013) – Oklahoma Christian fans who want to watch the Eagles in their men’s basketball exhibition game against Oklahoma next month can buy tickets starting Monday.

OC’s most recent exhibition game at OU was on Oct. 31, 2006, when the Sooners – then coached by Jeff Capel – won 79-51. The Sooners now are coached by Lon Kruger, who has worked with OC coach Dan Hays through the years through their mutual association with USA Basketball.

The upcoming season will be the second during which Oklahoma has returned to play games at McCasland Field House, the Sooners’ home court from 1928 until December 1975.
