OU hoops to play Texas A&M in Houston

State briefs

NORMAN — Oklahoma will take on Texas A&M in college basketball in the new Big 12/SEC Challenge.

OU and the Aggies will play Dec. 31 in Houston.

This will be the first “challenge” event for Big 12 men’s basketball since a four-year series between the Conference and the Pac-10 ended in 2010.

The Sooners finished 20-12 last year and advanced to the NCAA Tournament. Texas A&M finished 18-15 and did not participate in the postseason after moving from the Big 12 to the SEC.

OSU, South Carolina to play in Big12/SEC Challenge

STILLWATER — Oklahoma State will host South Carolina in the new Big12/SEC Challenge in December.

The Cowboys and Gamecocks will play Dec. 6 in Stillwater.

This will be the first “challenge” event for Big 12 men’s basketball since a four-year series between the Conference and the Pac-10 ended in 2010.

OSU returns four starters from last year’s 24-9 team. South Carolina has all five starters back from the team that finished 14-18 last season.

Tulsa Shock cut 2 more from training camp roster

TULSA — The Tulsa Shock waived guards Doneeka Lewis and Italee Lucas on Tuesday, trimming their roster as the regular season approaches.

Lewis and Lucas both played in Tulsa’s preseason opener last week, but neither scored. Lewis played 10 minutes and missed all four of her shots, including two 3-pointers. She had one assist, one rebound, one block, one steal and one turnover.

Lucas played 5 minutes, missing all three of her shots. She had two rebounds and committed three fouls.

Tulsa must cut three more players to get its roster down to 11 by May 23. The Shock’s next preseason game is Friday night at Seattle.

Top prospect going to KU

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. — Top prep basketball prospect Andrew Wiggins told a small gathering of family and friends at his high school gym Tuesday that he will play at Kansas.

Then the Huntington Prep star signed his letter-of-intent and officially became a Jayhawk. No big speech. No bands, live TV coverage or props.

Just the way Wiggins wanted it.

And just like that, Lawrence, Kan., became more of a focal point for the upcoming college basketball season.

The 6-foot-8 Toronto native chose Kansas over Kentucky, North Carolina and Florida State. Wiggins said there wasn’t one particular selling point, taking into account each school’s coaching staff, players and program.
