There isn't a much bigger stage for Bedlam hoops than there was on Monday night.
With a national television audience watching on- as well as a good number of fans that were making their first trip to the Lloyd Noble Center in 2014- a statement was made emphatically as Oklahoma wrapped up a 88-76 victory over preseason Big 12 favorite, and in-state rival, Oklahoma State.
SoonerScoop.com's most popular video feature Sights and Sounds takes you to the baseline of the Lloyd Noble Center right alongside ESPN's Big Monday cameras as Oklahoma improved to 16-4, 5-2 on the season.
See what it's like to watch the game courtside as Oklahoma knocked off its third Associated Press top-12 opponent in its last six games, getting 48 combined points of contribution from three of the Sooner State natives on the Oklahoma roster.
Fellas that know a thing or two about the rivalry and what it means to the respected fanbases.
For freshman point guard Jordan Woodard (18 points) and sophomore Ryan Spangler (15 points and 17 rebounds) it was their first taste of Bedlam basketball.
It's something more than just water-cooler bragging rights.
For senior, Oklahoma City native, Tyler Neal (15 points) it marked a final opportunity to lace the sneakers up versus Oklahoma State in front of the Sooner faithful, ending with a night to remember falling just one point shy of his career-high.
