NORMAN, Okla. -- It's a big week for the Oklahoma men's basketball team, as it will take on a pair of top-25 opponents at Lloyd Noble Center.

The 12-2 Sooners, who won 88-85 at Texas on Saturday to begin Big 12 Conference play, will host No. 16 Kansas on Wednesday at 6 p.m. CT before hosting 13th-ranked and undefeated Iowa State on Saturday at 11 a.m. CT.

OU is off to its best start in five years and second-best start since the 2004-05 season when it shared the Big 12 regular season title with Kansas.

The Sooners rank fourth nationally with their 87.3 points per game. The last time they averaged more points per contest for an entire season was during the 1993-94 campaign (87.4), which was the last under head coach Billy Tubbs.

Tickets remain for both games this week (limited number for Kansas contest), and can be purchased here or by calling the OU Athletics Ticket Office at (800) 456-4668.
