Oturu also chipped in 10 rebounds for his ninth career double-double while Carr and Willis both had eight assists. The Golden Gophers went 13-for-29 from 3-point range in the victory and shot a staggering 54.4 percent from the floor. Minnesota will be looking to make its third NCAA Tournament appearance in the last four seasons and a neutral-site win over Oklahoma would get Richard Pitino's squad off on the right foot.

Meanwhile, the Sooners took down UT-San Antonio 85-67, covering as 13-point favorites, in their home opener. OU's success was spearheaded by the efforts of guard De'Vion Harmon, who had 23 points, and guard Austin Reaves, who had 23 points along with six rebounds. Both were huge additions for the Sooners and getting them off to such a blazing start is a good sign for Lon Kruger's squad. Reaves joined the roster as a transfer from Wichita State and showed his ability to get to the rim by hitting 8-of-12 shots from inside the arc. And Harmon was a top-50 national prospect, according to 247Sports, who hit 8-of-13 from the floor and 3-for-6 from beyond the arc.
