NORMAN, Okla. - For Oklahoma seniors Nate Carter, Michael Neal, Kellen Sampson and Chris Walker, Monday night's men's basketball game against Kansas will hold special meaning.
It's not because the game is a "WhiteOUt," it's not because the Jayhawks are ranked No. 6 in the nation and it's not because the game will be televised to a national ESPN audience. The quartet will remember this game more than most because it will serve as their last collegiate home game in the regular season.
Carter, a forward from San Diego, Calif., Neal, a guard from Mesquite, Texas, Sampson, a guard from Norman, and Walker, a guard from Sacramento, Calif., are all expected to start against the Jayhawks. An on-court senior ceremony with family members will be held prior to the 8 p.m. tip-off.
Each of the seniors took a moment to reminisce about their time as Sooners and to thank fans in the following video clips.
