The Preseason NIT has an outstanding matchup in the Championship game as #11 Oklahoma meets #10 Purdue. Both teams are unbeaten, have excellent coaches, and superstar players.  The Sooners are led by preseason Big 12 player of the year Blake Griffin, who is averaging 27.2 points and 18.8 rebounds per game.  Purdue is led by E’Twaun Moore and Robbie Hummel.  The Sooners rely upon Griffin for the bulk of their scoring while Purdue is more balanced. “We all look for each other. We don’t feel like one person is the man or one person is above one another,” Moore said, “We look for our open teammates and make a pass.”

“They’re really good,” Oklahoma head coach Jeff Capel said about Purdue. “I got a chance to watch them earlier. They’re so well coached, they’re disciplined, they’re physical, they have such good guards.”  Oklahoma is also very good, specifically Griffin who may be the best player in the country. “Oklahoma, they’re definitely a good team,” said Purdue guard Keaton Grant. “There’s not another Blake Griffin in the NCAA. There’s only one of him in the United States, so it’ll definitely be a great challenge playing against them. We look forward to it.”
