NORMAN, Okla. (BVM) – This past season the University of Oklahoma men’s basketball struggled. With a 19-16 record and the loss of 5 key players to the transfer portal, the season wasn’t looking promising. However, things are turning around with recent commits that head coach Porter Moser recently announced.
Despite the loss of valued players, such as Mo Gibson and Elijah Harkless, Moser has brushed off the negative energy given from the transfer portal and found four new players that can bring new life to the program. The players include Luke Northweather, a 6-foot-9 forward and a three-star prospect, Ortega Orweh, a four-star shooting guard Benjamin Schroder, a guard coming from Germany.
Among the incoming freshman, Porter also received some players from the transfer portal that will be joining the Sooners in the fall. These include Sam Godwin, who is a 6-foot-9 forward, and Joe Bamisile, a 6-foot-4 guard.
The loss of some players may have been exactly what the Sooners needed going into the new season. With fresh faces and new work ethics in practice, the team could potentially have a successful upcoming season. Coach Moser has a lot of work to do with the new team, but it will be a new challenge that is sure to bring success.
