Can the Thunder break out of their funk tonight? They've lost 3 straight at home, 5 of their last 6 overall and 12 of their last 18. Billy Donovan talks about what's going on. We'll also hear from Sooners mens basketball coach Lon Kruger about the future of the program and from OSU baseball coach Josh Holliday about that wild Bedlam win last night in Stillwater.

Here's more of what Billy D said when asked if the Thunder are playing to their strengths every game. (From Michael Kinney @EyeAmTruth)

Tonight's game against Indiana begins a crucial 5-game homestand for OKC. Tipoff tonight a little past 7...you can see it on either Fox Sports Oklahoma or ESPN.

The OKC Blue won their playoff game against Salt Lake City last night at the Cox Center 118-113 to move on to the next round...they'll play Santa Cruz next.

The Southwestern Oklahoma State women's team playing in the Elite 8 of the NCAA Division 2 tournament beat St. Anselm last night in Columbus, Ohio, 71-61 to move on to the Final Four...they'll play Indiana University or Pennsylvania this evening at 5.

Spring football practices resuming at OU and OSU. In Norman later today quarterback Jalen Hurts will have his first news conference with reporters and in Stillwater Mike Gundy and Cowboy players will talk with reporters after today's practice.

The Pokes, or at least running back Chuba Hubbard, seem ready to "get back at it" as Gundy would say.

And how 'bout that Bedlam baseball game last night in Stillwater? The Cowboys jumped out to a 5-0 lead early, still seemed in control with a 5-2 lead in the 8th but three errors allowed OU to tie things up. Then in the bottom of the 9th Max Hewitt walked it off for the Pokes to claim their 8th straight Bedlam win.

Josh Holliday is now 21-6 against the Sooners. Last night's game was the annual non-conference Bedlam game so both teams remain 3-0 in league play.
