Oklahoma Sooners Basketball

The University of Oklahoma Sooners men's basketball is a part of the NCAA Division I Big 12 Basketball conference. The Sooners have had a basketball program since 1908 and have experienced relative success since that time. The Sooners participated in the very first NCAA Final Four tournament ever in 1939. In the early stages of the Oklahoma Sooners basketball program there were 9 coaches including Bennie Owen who also coached the football team.

Oklahoma Basketball Prominence

In 1981 the Sooners gained Head Coach Billy Tubbs, at that time the program started to gain national prominence. In 1988 Billy Tubbs led the Sooners all the way to the NCAA title game where they lost to the Kansas Jayhawks a team they had beaten twice in the regular season. At the end of Coach Tubbs run with the Oklahoma Sooners in 1994, the University of Oklahoma hired Kelvin Sampson. Coach Sampson immediately started things off right and was named the National Coach of the Year in 1995 by the Associated Press. Coach Kelvin Sampson led the Sooners to 8 consecutive 20-win seasons.

Current Staff

Currently the Oklahoma Sooners are coached by Jeff Capel, while Coach Capel started out a little behind par from his predecessors, he is now on track and Sooners fans seem to hold him in the same high esteem that they held for previous Sooners coaches. Oklahoma Sooners Head Coach Jeff Capel, led his team this year to the NCAA tournament where they made it all the way to the Elite Eight, where they lost to North Carolina.
