University of Oklahoma Sooners LogoHead coach Jeff Capel and the Oklahoma Sooners reached the 2nd round of the NCAA Tournament - the top of the college basketball world - in the 2007-2008 season and passed that with a Sweet Sixteen appearance in the 2009 Tournament. Capel is keeping up a long Sooners tradition of winning postseason play.

The Oklahoma Sooners is the University of Oklahoma, NCAA Division I men's basketball team. They currently play in the Big 12 Conference.

The University of Oklahoma was a charter member of the Southwest Athletic Conference (SWC) from 1914 to 1919. Then Oklahoma left the SWC and joined the Missouri Valley Intercollegiate Athletic Association. In 1928, the association divided and the Sooners were one of the teams that formed the Big Six Conference. With the addition of two additioanl schools, the Big Six became the Big Eight Conference. Four more universities were added in 1996 and the name was changed one last time to — the Big 12 Conference.

Throughout the years, the team has had good luck in head coaches.

Billy Tubbs brought the team to national attention during his reign as head coach for the Sooners from 1981 through 1994. Under Coach Tubbs the Oklahoma men's basketball team made 10 NCAA Tournament Appearances, one Final Four appearance, and one National Title Game appearance in 1988. The Sooners had two Conference Tournament Titles and 5 Conference Regular Season Titles in the Big 8 while Tubbs was coaching.

Following the resignation of Billy Tubbs, Coach Kelvin Sampson took over. It was a good match. The Sooners went to the postseason every year during his tenure at the University of Oklahoma. In 2002, the Sooners played in the NCAA Tournament Final Four where they lost to the Indiana Hoosiers.

The Sooners hold the record with their streak of 25 straight post season appearances. Sampson left OU in 2006 after coaching his team through 10 NCAA Tournament Appearances and one Final Four appearance. In the Big 12, the Sooners under Sampson won three Conference Tournament Titles and one Conference Regular Season Title.

Many Sooners have gone on to play professional basketball. Blake Griffin, Wayman Tisdale, Alvan Adams and Mookie Blaylock are only three of them whose names should be familiar.
