OU set a program record by selling 4,013 season tickets last year. OU has already raced past that total by selling out the reserved level, which seats approximately 5,000 fans.

The start of the 2006-07 season is one month away. The Sooners, who have been ranked as high as No. 3 in preseason polls, open the year with a pair with an exhibition game against Laketruck on Wednesday, Nov. 1.  They play a second exhibition game against Missouri Western State on Nov. 7, before opening the regular season with the State Farm Tip-Off Classic on Nov. 12.  OU will face DePaul in the second game of the Tip-Off Classic at 2:30 p.m. CST, while the Rutgers and Georgia will open the day at Noon.  All four teams were Sweet 16 participants last season.

This season, OU returns five starters and nine letterwinners, including 2006 consensus All-American Courtney Paris and 2006 All-Big 12 second team performer Leah Rush. OU also added five true freshman, who are headlined by McDonald’s All-Americans Abi Olajuwon and Amanda Thompson.
