NORMAN – Oklahoma men's and women's basketball is back at the Lloyd Noble Center next week for a pair of marquee contests. OU Athletics is offering $10 tickets and an assortment of promotions as the men's program hosts Creighton on Tuesday, Dec. 18 (8 p.m.) and the women's team faces No. 1 UConn on Wednesday, Dec. 19 (7:30 p.m.).

In addition to the ticket deals, the Sooners will give away an exclusive “Kyler Knows” Heisman poster, offer a variety of Holiday themed kids stations and give fans the opportunity to win a pair of tickets to the Orange Bowl.


OU Athletics is offering $10 tickets for both games. Tickets can be purchased on or at the Lloyd Noble Center box office on the day of the games.


As the Sooners host top-ranked UConn on Wednesday, OU Athletics is encouraging fans to “white out” the LNC. Fans should plan on wearing white OU gear to the game and the first 1,500 fans in attendance will receive a free white t-shirt.

The women's basketball game will also feature a special halftime performance from Red Panda.


Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray became the seventh Sooner to win the Heisman Trophy this past weekend in New York City. Fans will be able to claim an exclusive “Kyler Knows” poster, commemorating his recent enshrinement into Oklahoma and college football history. The poster will be available at both games outside of the Sooner Jr. Kids Zone on the south end of the top concourse.


One lucky fan at both the Creighton and UConn games will walk away with a pair of tickets to the upcoming Orange Bowl, where No. 4 Oklahoma faces No. 1 Alabama in the semifinals of the College Football Playoff in Miami.

At the men's game, fans can sign up for their chance to win with an OU tickets representative at the top of section E2. Two lucky fans from those who sign up will be randomly chosen to compete in a free throw contest.

At the women's game, a coupon to redeem the two tickets will be inside of a lucky t-shirt thrown out by the spirit squad during a timeout.


The Sooner Jr. Kids Zone, located on the south side of the top concourse, will host a variety of holiday-themed activities for young OU fans in attendance. The area will include a photobooth with Santa Claus, a "Boomer on a Shelf" stuffed animal giveaway and an ornament making station. The women's gymnastics team will also be signing autographs and team posters outside of the Kids Zone. The first 250 young fans to stop by at the women's basketball game will receive a free OU ornament.
