If you're just joining us after the college football season ended on Monday, welcome. And if you've been following college basketball all year long, you already know that Oklahoma has been one of the best surprises in the sport thanks to the unbelievable play of freshman Trae Young.
The breakout star is averaging a ridiculous 29.2 points per game and 10.1 assists, being one of the select few college players to average a double-double.
And he's already broken a record for the most 25-point, 10-assist games in a career over the last 20 seasons in just 13 games (as well as tying another for most assists in a game).

But Oklahoma's season hasn't been without its difficulties thus far.
Despite a No. 9 ranking in the polls and a 12-2 record, they have a major flaw that will stop them from being a title contender - their defense.
The Sooners rank 324th out of 351 teams in points per game allowed with 80.1. That number may be inflated due to their high-paced offense, but it's still a noticeable fault. If Lon Kruger's team wants any chance at a deep tournament run, they'll have to improve on the defensive end.
