Trae Young and the Oklahoma basketball team made history with the Sooners’ first upset of a top-3 team in a nonconference road game ever. They beat the Wichita State Shockers soundly, 91-83, and earned themselves a spot in the AP Top 25.

It’s the first time the Sooners have been ranked in the AP Top 25 all year.
The Sooners are powered by the incredible Trae Young, who is averaging 28.8 points and 8.9 assists per game. There’s a strong chance that he’ll end up with multiple freshman of the year awards if this season keeps on playing out the same way for the Sooners.
Oklahoma is 8-1 so far, and their next game is against Northwestern State at home. Conference play is still looming for the Sooners, who have gone from the middle of the pack to one of the Big 12 frontrunners by blazing through their nonconference schedule.
