No. 13 Oakland Looks for an upset against No. 4 Texas

The Texas Longhorns are one of the best teams in college basketball and they spent most of the year near the top of the college basketball polls. Oakland is an underrated team in college basketball and they believe they have a shot to get the upset against the Texas Longhorns to open up the NCAA tournament.

Oakland is not a basketball team to be taken lightly. Oakland boasts one of the most balanced arrays of scoring talent in all of Division I. Four Golden Grizzlies are contributing double figures in scoring per game, and five are tallying at least 9.8 points on a nightly basis. Oakland is at its best when Keith Benson is doing his thing, scoring points, grabbing rebounds and blocking shots. However, Oakland has another very capable post in Will Hudson, a second-team all-conference selection and the Summit League leader in field-goal percentage. With NBA-like talent the Golden Grizzlies are poised for the upset.
It will be a hostile environment for Oakland in Tulsa, but the Grizzlies should be used to that after playing at Tennessee, West Virginia, Illinois, Michigan and Ohio State during the regular season. The Longhorns advanced to the championship game of the Big 12 tourney, and at one point Rick Barnes’ team logged 11 consecutive victories. Tristan Thompson, Texas’ top rebounder, could have a battle on his hands against Oakland.
The battle down low will be intriguing to watch as Texas battles with Oakland in round one of the NCAA Tournament.
