The win marks the second straight victory over the Wolverines at Cliff Keen Arena, as Oklahoma claimed its eighth victory of a top 10 opponent.

“Jake and Steve helped carry the team,” added Williams. “They are doing their job and it was a great environment for the meet. I am proud of the guy’s effort today and we are looking forward to the meet against Penn State and Illinois.”

Altogether, the Sooners claimed five out of the six individual event titles on the night. 

Oklahoma returns home for its last regular season meet against Penn State and Illinois on Saturday, March 19, at 7 p.m. in the McCasland Field House.

“We have a third of the team graduating. It will be a special night,” continued Williams. “We want everyone to come out and support us in the field house and with our seniors well. They have done an outstanding job and it should be an awesome event.”

The meet will be Senior Night for seniors CJ Grimes, Ian Jackson, Steven Legendre, Anthony Naddour and Bobby Shortle.
