NCAAB - US Sports - Hill braced for Sooners finale

Oklahoma Sooners forward Jalen Hill has his sights set on a victory at Kansas State on Saturday as his team bid to secure a place in the NCAA tournament.

Oklahoma are 200/1 to win the NCAA Championship outright, while Big 12 rivals and defending champions Baylor Bears are 12/1.

The Sooners and Kansas State both have 6-11 conference records and are tied for eighth place in the Big 12 standings.  

Sixth seed awaits

The winner of Saturday's game will earn the sixth seed in the Big 12 Tournament and a bye in the opening-round game next Wednesday.

Both teams still have a chance of securing an at-large berth in the NCAA Men's Basketball Championship, and with plenty on the line going into the final regular season game Hill is in confident mood.

The forward is in his third year with the Sooners and has enjoyed his best campaign to date, averaging 9.0 points-per-game, 1.5 assists and 5.9 rebounds, and he isn't ready for the season to end just yet.

'Confidence'

"Having confidence for us is really big going into Saturday," he said, via the Oklahoman. "It's going to help us get this win. At the end of the day, whatever we have to do, we'll do."

The Sooners go into the game after two successive victories over Oklahoma State and West Virginia, while K-State have lost their last four games.

The Sooners won 71-69 when these two teams last met in Oklahoma but they haven't won an away game against the Wildcats since 2012, having lost each of their last nine trips to Kansas State.
